Based on interviews with Wojtylas childhood friends and high-ranking members of the Curia and on his intimate knowledge of the Vaticans inner workings, Moody traces the popes painful yet triumphant journey to the Throne of Peter. From the untimely deaths of his brother and parents to establishing an underground theater company in World War II- from his difficult choice between the stage and the priesthood to his complex and constant battle with Communist authorities in Poland- all the way to the Vatican itself and his controversial struggle to fashion the Church, Pope John Paul II shows with firsthand accounts and visual impact a man who believes that the only path to salvation leads through the desert of human suffering.
