Lessons in Hope: My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II

Becoming a papal biographer will change your life–or so it seems, judging from George Weigel‘s Lessons in Hope: My Unexpected Life with St. John Paul II.

In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Weigel defends his claim that the late pope was “the emblematic figure of the second half of the 20th century,” and suggests what he might say to Americans in 2017, if he could give one more homily.

    As usual, John, a good choice. I’m not sure this statement would be as true for the biographer of just any pope.

    Also, it sounds as if you did turn down the levels on the musical intro. Thanks.
