More than just a collection of memories, however, Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way is also a call to action. In discussing issues like the strength of mercy, the importance of harmony between faith, reason, and the heart, and the necessity of encouraging children to pray, Pope John Paul II shows us that with little steps, we can change the world.

"Sure to gratify those hungry for [the Pope's] instruction and inspiring faith, as well as non-Catholics interested in his philosophy." (Publishers Weekly)
Well read and even better written, The Holy Father takes the reader (listener) through a tour of his own life as a Bishop. In doing this John Paul II offers us a reflection on what he believes today's Bishops are called to be. An interesting read filled with the Holy Father's own humanness, I would recommend this to anyone who would like to see the human side of the Holy Father and develop a new view of the hierarchy of the Church.
I really can't. The one thing that struck me about this book was the theology behind the calling to a vocation that God has for us. We don't choose God for our vocations, God chooses us for them. It is up to us to find that vocation through the discernment of our life's past and events. An excellent read, and a must for anyone in discernment or thinking about a religious vocation.
My top three for sure. In is inspirational. The Pope was a very holy man during lifetime. It constitutes a role model to imitate
You need to read the whole book to understand its title. Very compelling
Put more books written by John Paul II, there are many about him but just a handful written by him
with my ignorance in christianity it is a new experience
yes it was
with my background in Islam, I recommend this book to be a source of information not only for Christians,
