Written with heart and depth, this book is at once a moving elegy and a brilliant celebration of a man whose life taught us the greatest lesson of all: how to live.

As the leader of the Catholic Church, the oldest institution in the Western world, Pope John Paul II was a giant in every sphere he touched - personal, theological, political, ecumenical. In an age rich with heroes, Pope John Paul II was truly the great man of the past century. Peggy Noonan brings her sharp observations, acute sensibility, warmth, and wit to the life of the Pope and shows the personal effect his journey had on millions throughout the world.

Peggy Noonan is the bestselling author of seven books on American politics, history and culture. Her articles and essays have appeared in Forbes, Time, Newsweek, The Washington Post, The New York Times and other publications. She has been nominated for Emmy Awards for the writing of a post-9/11 television special and for her work on the television drama The West Wing. Peggy Noonan was a special assistant to President Ronald Reagan from 1984 to 1986. In 1988 she was chief speechwriter for George Bush when he ran for the presidency. Peggy Noonan currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
