PRODUCT INFORMATION
New edition forthcoming
by: George Weigel

Witness to Hope is the authoritative biography of one of the singular figures -- some might argue the singular figure -- of our time. With unprecedented cooperation from John Paul II and the people who knew and worked with him throughout his life, George Weigel offers a groundbreaking portrait of the Pope as a man, a thinker, and a leader whose religious convictions defined a new approach to world politics -- and changed the course of history. As even his critics concede, John Paul II occupied a unique place on the world stage and put down intellectual markers that no one could ignore or avoid as humanity entered a new millennium fraught with possibility and danger.

The Pope was a man of prodigious energy who played a crucial yet insufficiently explored role in some of the most momentous events of our time, including the collapse of European communism, the quest for peace in the Middle East, and the democratic transformation of Latin America. This updated edition of Witness to Hope explains how this "man from a far country" did all of that, and much more -- and what both his accomplishments and the unfinished business of his pontificate mean for the future of the Church and the world.

"An extraordinary biography of an extraordinary man...With polished prose and impeccable scholarship. Weigel introduces us to the man who, refined in the crucible of the darkest days of the twentieth century and sustained by unshakable faith, offers the world a message of hope and peace for the twenty-first century. I highly recommend Witness of Hope to any who would know the person and personality of Pope John Paul II." -John Cardinal O'Connor, Archbishop of New York.
This edition includes a new Afterword and Highlights of the Jubilee Year. 1016 pages. Trade Paperback.
