Rise, Let Us Be on Our Way by Pope John Paul II

Following the success of the international bestseller Crossing the Threshold of Hope, Pope John Paul II provides the world with a glimpse into his past in Rise, Let Us Be On Our Way. Chronicling the years he spent as a bishop and later archbishop in Krakow, Poland through his election as the first Polish Pope in 1978, he recounts everything from communist efforts to suppress the church in Poland to his efforts to adopt a new and more open style of pastoral ministry. With recollections on his life as well as his thoughts on the issues facing the world now, Pope John Paul II offers words of wisdom in this book that will appeal to people of any faith looking to strengthen their spirituality.

THIS IS TRULY A VERY SPECIAL BOOK. IT IS WRITTION WITH DEEP CONVICTION AND NEEDS TO BE READ BY PEOPLE OF ALL FAITHS. I WAS ESPICALLY IMPRESSED AND MOVED TO KNOW THAT POPE JOHN PAUL THE 2 AT A VERY EARLY AGE GOT THE CALL FROM GOD TO SERVE AND EVEN DURING WORLD WAR 2 UNDER NAZI OCCUPATION HE WAS HELPING THE OPPRESSED BRINGING FREEDOM AND THE LOVE OF CHRIST TO ALL. POPE JOHN PAUL 2 WAS TRULY A MAN OF GOD AND A DEFENDER OF THE FAITH AND A TRUE AMBASSADOR OF CHRIST. THIS BOOK WILL GIVE YOU A GREAT APPRIEATION OF THE LIFE OF POPE JOHN PAUL 2 CAUSE TO ME IT SHOWS HE WAS ABLE TO RELATE TO PEOPLES SUFFERING AND THERE LIVING UNDER TYRANNY HE WAS THERE, HE EXPERIENCED IT ALL FIRST HAND AND HE WRITES ABOUT MANY FASINATING THINGS IN THIS VERY INSPIRATIONAL MOVING MEMOIR.PLEASE GET A COPY FOR A FRIEND AND A FAMILY MEMBER. AFTER YOU READ THIS YOU WONT BE THE SAME. THIS BOOK IS A GREAT TRIBUTE TO SUCH A WONDERFUL MAN WHO MADE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE IN.

This is an exceptional book. It was written straight from the heart of Pope John Paul II, which is beautiful and very spiritual to read. Whether you are Catholic or not, you should read this book for your own enjoyment. Rest in Peace, Pope John Paul II.

This was a very well written book but lacked a lot of personal depth that I was hoping for. Not as insightful as would be expected but this is coming from a non-catholic.
