Have read through it two times. Great read and history review of many things I was unaware of during his tenure as Pope.

2811 Pope John Paul II: The Biography, by Tad Szulc (read 24 Dec 1995) Some of this book was very interesting, but the recent years of this pontificate concern me. I am disturbed by some of the Pope's rigidity--forbidding even discussion of women priests seems far out. Certainly a new Pope will be more flexible in some things. But I presume we'll see a new century before we see a new Pope. [These are my recorded reactions to the book--which I have not edited in inserting this "review."] ( )
