"Jason Evert offers readers an insightful, popular introduction to St. John Paul's life and loves." --George Weigel, Author, Witness to Hope
“Jason Evert has synthesized the life and teaching of Pope John Paul II around the motives that mark a saint’s life: what great loves moved him to be the witness to the Gospel, the apostle to the modern world, a mystic who was also philosopher and pastor? Reading this book, those who knew him will find themselves smiling and nodding; those who never met him will come to know him.” --Francis Cardinal George, Archbishop of Chicago

What a remarkable soul Saint John Paul II was/is. His mystical prayer life as it is beautifully offered by the author Jason Evert, has a power which kind of sets a goal for the rest of us to achieve - that God wants this for all of us - and will grant it to us if we truly want intimacy with Him . . . as incredible as it may seem.
The confines of time and space didn't seem to confine this Pope. His deep immersion in prayer was always more important. He seemed to be already living in eternity.
I really appreciate the effort it must've surely taken to find the stories that are included in this book - plus the time to actually write the book.
If you seriously wish to strengthen your relationship with our Lord, with His Blessed Mother, this book is a classroom and John Paul II is our teacher. Please read it!
John Paul did not bait the Soviet Union occupiers of Poland. He simply told the truth. The truth frightened them. Hebrews 5:14 in the Amplified Bible states, "But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law." This book gives and example of a "full-grown"
man. If any man or woman, likewise, wants to be a moral adult this book gives an example of one. John Paul's life was not a matter of following rules, or philosophies, or doctrines. It was a life to understanding and yielding the impetus that gives worth to each and
human life. It is a good book to read if one wants to become a better and more effective human being.
