The book is well written (if somewhat repetitive, perhaps inevitably so with more than 900 pages) and Weigel's command of the material is impressive, but Witness to Hope reads more like a valedictory hagiography than a sober work of journalism. But, the story being told is massive and its subject is intense and deep and large in wisdom and self-discipline and faith and hope and love. Drawing on Augustine's notion that human hearts are ``restless until [they] rest in'' God, the pope has held throughout his career that modern anxiety, malaise, and restlessness can only be quelled through Christ, so, as John Paul II's Church has worked for human freedom, it has also evidenced a rather Protestant-esque commitment to spreading the Gospel message.

But for incisive analysis of this Pope's theological and political significance, or for insight into his spiritual life, readers will have to wait until the principals in his life story are free to speak more frankly with some future biographer. By bringing the age-old wisdom of biblical religion into active conversation with contemporary life and thought, the Pope "from a far country" has crafted a challenging proposal for the human future that is without parallel in the modern world.

Item was as described and good, but the delivery was very disappointing. I know what he did, and I know what his philosophy is, but I don’t know the man. More could have been said. --This text refers to an alternate, Weigel's massive work aspires to be definitive: it is subtitled "the," not "a," biography of John Paul II. Now, with an updated preface, the latest edition of the definitive biography of Pope John Paul II that explores how influential he was on the world stage and in some of the most historic events of the twentieth century that can still be felt today. Witness to Hope; the Biography of John Paul II. More troubling, Weigel does not ask some of the really difficult questions about this Pope--regarding his involvement with sects such as Opus Dei, for example, or the relationship between his innovative "theology of the body" and his conservative stance on homosexuality, or even the vicissitudes of prayer life. This book chronicles the life of the 20th century's most beloved pope, and the profound impact he had on Christians and Europe during the Cold War. 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.
