Review:

"Jason Evert offers readers an insightful, popular introduction to St. John Paul's life and loves." --George Weigel, Author, Witness to Hope 

“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, Archbishop of Chicago
