The reader will discover the most important aspects of this great pontiff's life, as well as a snapshot look at modern history with glimpses into Poland and Europe under Nazi and Communist regimes, short biographies of other recent popes, the solidarity labor movement, and many other momentous world events.
In October 1978, the bishop of Krakow was elected to the papacy and John Paul II has been His Holiness for longer than any previous pope. As a highly respected leader of modern times he has changed former traditions by traveling all over the world; met with news media, labor unions organizers, and world leaders; addressed the United Nations Assembly; and pardoned his would-be assassin.
As a pope, his personal contact with many of the faithful and his charisma, warmth, and message of peace will forever be his legacy.
