An amazing story, well read and a joy to listen to. To hear the story read so we'll is far better than seeing the movie that, of necessity must leave out much that can only be found in hearing the whole text.

In Lessons in Hope, George Weigel tells the story of his unique friendship with St. John Paul II. As Weigel learns the pope "from inside", he also offers a firsthand account of the tumult of post-Vatican II Catholicism and the Cold War's endgame, introducing listeners to the heroes who brought down European communism. Later, he shows us the aging pope grappling with the post-9/11 world order and teaching new lessons in dignity through his own suffering.

Weigel's book offers a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the life of both Pope St. John Paul II and the Church in the years at the turn of the second millennium.
