John Paul the Great by Peggy Noonan

From time to time I like to recommend books I believe our readers will enjoy. With that in mind, I enthusiastically recommend John Paul the Great: Remembering a Spiritual Father by Peggy Noonan. Those familiar with Noonan know that her words can at times seem magical. This book is no exception.

In John Paul the Great, Noonan provides an overview of the life of John Paul II and explains how John Paul II inspired millions around the world through his greatness and goodness. That alone would make reading this book worthwhile. What I found particularly moving was the exploration of the impact John Paul II had on her own spiritual journey. Many of her fans may be surprised by Peggy’s description of her own life before the Pope helped her rediscover her faith. I certainly was.

If you are a fan of John Paul II, history, church history, theology or simply want an enjoyable read, you will not go wrong with John Paul the Great: Remembering a Spiritual Father.

Thanks for the recommendation…I’ll give you one in return that I think is really good. Women Who Make the World Worse: and How Their Radical Feminist Assault Is Ruining Our Schools, Families, Military, and Workplaces by Kate O’Bierne. I’ve started to read it and it’s a good one.
