Hard history lesson
I found that as much as I wanted to learn about this pope, the author never stayed on point. We had flash forwards, flash backwards and mixed in with that were lots of key points in history. This does not flow like a regular book, but rather a bunch of bullet points that are formed together in some sort of time line with tid bits hanging off of that. I never could stay focused enough to finish the book.

passionate, intriguing, inspiring
Sweeney narrates his own historical plunge into the life & times of Peter of Moroni. His passion for the details is obvious in his considerable detective work to examine the history from all angles, providing a richly woven tribute to this mysterious man of God.
Further exploration of key persons in government & Church of the time--including Francis of Assisi, the "pillar saints" & hermits--create a fuller bounty of understanding for the life & choices of the brief but godly Pope.
An excellent read/listen that will keep your attention throughout.
