"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!
My first encounter with him was as an 8th grade student hearing him speak as a chastity rally in Denver, Colorado. I was moved immediately by his message and kept it with me through my teenage years.
They were of course tumultuous years, but his message of purity guided me in so many ways through temptations. This was driven further in me through reading his books and through further encounters with him.
Now I am 24 years old and I come across this book. I was present at St. John Paul II's canonization in Rome, but never had the opportunity to see this saint personally. So I read some of George Weigel's Witness to Hope, which was definitely a great resource full of all kinds of facts about John Paul II, but Evert's work has truly made me feel like I know this saint. Even years after he has died, even though I never met this man, I feel truly moved by this man.
This is not only an exceptional biography but a window into the joy that is Christianity. After reading this book in one weekend, I am inspired and praying to this new saint to intercede for me ... I am completely certain that he will.
This book will make your heart sing. I recommend it to everyone.
