In Lessons in Hope, George Weigel tells the story of his unique friendship with St. John Paul II. As Weigel learns the pope "from inside", he also offers a firsthand account of the tumult of post-Vatican II Catholicism and the Cold War's endgame, introducing listeners to the heroes who brought down European communism. Later, he shows us the aging pope grappling with the post-9/11 world order and teaching new lessons in dignity through his own suffering.
A deeply humane portrait of an eminent scholar learning a saint, Lessons in Hope is essential listening for anyone seeking a fuller understanding of a world-changing pope.

Review of Lesson’s in Hope
At first I thought this was a bit slow going however the further along I got along the more interesting and fascinating it became. Eventually could not wait to turn it on when we got in the car to continue our trip. I felt like I was on a journey through history and Saint Pope John Paul’s Life along with Mr. Weigel
And it gave me greater understanding of the Saint, his great gifts and Mr. Weigel’s great good fortune to share his literary and research expertise to share this with me.
I also gave me pause to consider how this relates to our current culture in the USA and the Catholic Church.

Magical (Miraculous?) stories
I've read the two earlier biographies of Pope John Paul and, as the author hoped, this is a wonderful third piece of the package. Highly recommended! And I'm going to read again the first two parts.
