Pope John Paul IIby Jo Garcia-Cobb
In a world that is growing metaphorically smaller and yet infinitely more complex, no figure has spoken to more people with a more peaceful and effective message than Pope John Paul II. Since his ordination as Pope in 1978, John Paul has traveled the world, building bridges of peace. This loving tribute to his life and work follows Karol Josef Wojtyla's life and career from his boyhood in war-ravaged Poland through his aspirations as an actor and writer to his position as the most charismatic and influential Pope of the modern era.

- Sidebars enliven the text with details of the Poland of John Paul's youth, and his role as a diplomat, spiritual leader, and shaper of modern Church doctrine
