About the Book
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.
