Overview

A French novelist once wrote, "Tell me what you love, and I will tell you who you are." Although there are countless ways to study Saint John Paul the Great, the most direct route is by entering the man's heart.

Discover the five greatest loves of Saint John Paul II, through remarkable unpublished stories about him from bishops, priests who organized his papal pilgrimages, his students in Poland, Swiss Guards, and others. Mining through a mountain of papal resources, Jason Evert has uncovered the gems and now presents the Church a treasure chest brimming with the jewels of the saint's life.

Rekindle your own faith by learning what (and who) captivated the heart of this great saint.

ENDORSEMENTS:
"Jason Evert has synthesized the life and teaching of Pope John Paul II around the motives that mark a saint's life: what great loves moved him to be the witness to the Gospel, the apostle to the modern world, a mystic who was also philosopher and pastor? Reading this book, those who knew him will find themselves smiling and nodding; those who never met him will come to know him."
- Francis Cardinal George, OMI (Archbishop of Chicago)

"Jason Evert offers readers an insightful, popular introduction to St. John Paul's life and loves."
- George Weigel (Author of Witness to Hope and The End and the Beginning)

"Amid the great array of John Paul bios, this one stands out because of the evident love the author has for his subject. In this telling, love draws out new riches and makes a familiar story fresh and new."
- Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC (Bestselling author, 33 Days to Morning Glory and Consoling the Heart of Jesus)
