John Paul II: Man of History by Edward Stourton
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


John Paul was, famously, a bundle of paradoxes; he defied every attempt to put him in an ideological box, and he was equally bewildering to his admirers and his detractors. Edward Stourton unravels John Paul's life, his beliefs, his actions and ultimately places him in context within the Catholic Church of the 20th and 21st Century. A wonderfully, insightful, involving and rewarding look at the life of a man who was not only one of the most important men of the last thirty years of the 20th century but who became, in his last days, a living symbol of the Christian response to suffering and an inspiration to billions.
