This DVD from NBC News captures the amazing world-changing life of Pope John Paul. Main feature is a beautiful bio, that shows not only the major events in the Pope's life, but how those events -- WW2, Communism, etc. -- shaped his faith and his worldview. Bonus features deliver great video from the NBC News archive and include interview with Keith Miller, NBC's longtime Vatican reporter -- who gives viewer feel for what it was like to be "inside" John Paul's history-making Vatican.
