Synopsis

*Includes pictures of the Pope and important people, places, and events in his life.*Includes a bibliography of the Pope's works and works about him for further reading.*Includes a Table of Contents.A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of historys most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors Catholic Legends series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of the Churchs most important men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The 20th century had no shortage of influential leaders, both good and bad. But while dictators, generals, and presidents came and went, the last quarter of the 20th century could rely on one thing: the papacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II. In becoming one of Catholicisms most popular leaders, and one shortly destined for sainthood, John Paul II indeed became one of the most famous and influential men of the 20th century. The first pope in centuries to not hail from Italy, John Paul II was responsible for a global outreach of epic proportions that brought him to over 100 countries, helped end communism in Europe, and brought people of different faiths closer together than ever before. Its often said that nobody in history has been seen and viewed in person by more people, an amazing feat for a man of humble origins born in Poland before World War II, a place that continues to especially venerate him today. Catholic Legends: The Life and Legacy of Blessed Pope John Paul II looks at the life and legacy of John Paul II, but it also humanizes the man born Karol Józef Wojtyla and provides a thorough assessment of his nearly 30 year papacy. Along with pictures of other important people, places and events in his life, you will learn about Pope John Paul II like you never have before, in no time at all.
