George Weigel, Witness to Hope: The Biography Of Pope John Paul II

George Weigel is an important lay Catholic public intellectual and here tackles a biography of one of the great popes of all time. This book is both an endearing, appreciative biography of John Paul II as well as an intellectual history that surrounds the life of one of the influential Christian figures of the twentieth century. Through Weigel, John Paul has influenced my faith immensely.
