Pope John Paul II was a giant in every sphere he touched - personal, theological, political, ecumenical. In an age rich with heroes, Pope John Paul II confronted tragedies from Nazism to communism. He was an intellectual animated by confidence and joy, a poet and playwright, a supporter of freedom who decried its abuse, a tough political gamesman, and a mystic convinced that the bullet which nearly killed him in Rome was directed away from his heart by the hand of the Mother of God. Here, bestselling author Peggy Noonan shows the personal effect his journey had upon her and millions of others throughout the world. Written with heart and depth, this book is at once a moving elegy and a brilliant celebration of a man whose life taught us the greatest lesson of all: how to live. Book jacket.

The first part of the book was very informative but the last part was very boring.
