A fascinating and brief, but somewhat scholarly, overview of Pope John Paul II's pontificate, written by his friend Cardinal Ratzinger. I like how Ratzinger explains briefly the significance of each encyclical and how they relate to each other.

The book is loaded with beautiful photos of the Pope, including many from his visits around the world and also includes a detailed timeline of his life and a complete list of his Pastoral Visits throughout the world.

Beautiful!

A charming, heartwarming little book that demonstrates the great love and appreciation that Pope Benedict XVI has for the life and works of Pope John Paul II. The book is supplemented with wonderful and iconic images of Pope John Paul II that include some photos of his various visits around the world.

A nice tribute to the life and papacy of St. John Paul II in words and pictures. Nothing super spectacular, especially if you're a devotee of JPII and already know his life, but its a nice book to remember the great man and thank God again for his life.
