Lessons in Hope
- My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II
- By: George Weigel
- Narrated by: Jim Meskimen
- Length: 12 hrs and 53 mins
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.

Magical (Miraculous?) stories
I've read the two earlier biographies of Pope John Paul and, as the author hoped, this is a wonderful third piece of the package. Highly recommended! And I'm going to read again the first two parts.
