John Paul II

A Personal Portrait of the Pope and the Man

Ray Flynn, Robin Moore, and Jim Vrabel

St. Martin's Griffin

Unlike any other pope, John Paul II has reached out, creating dialogue or creating uproar, but always striving to unite the human community. Drawing on years of personal interaction with the Pope, and on his unique understanding of the intersection of religion and politics, Flynn, with co-authors Robin Moore and Jim Vrabel, shows how John Paul II changed the papacy, perhaps forever.

REVIEWS

Praise for John Paul II

"John Paul II is a closely observed and deeply felt portrait of pope John Paul II as a man of encompassing human compassion, consuming devotion to the Church and its mission, and a faith in God strong enough to support, or renew, the faith of other people. It is a close-up that lets us see the Holy Father's goodness."--Bernard Cardinal Law, Archbishop of Boston

"A lovingly personal description of the pope as a human being, John Paul II is a personal testament to Flynn's friend and hero, not an ideological or theological tract. I have read almost all of the full-length biographies of the pope. They all have their merits, but none of them captures John Paul II as a person as well as Flynn has done." --Monsignor George G. Higgins, The Catholic University of America, recipient of the Medal of Freedom
