    One thought on “The Wisdom of John Paul II: The Pope on Life's Most Vital Questions”

    1. This book contains excerpts from speeches, homilies, and writings concerning issues of Christian faith and doctrine from the first decade of his papacy. It is a sort of "best of" compilation regarding the more important matters of that time period from socio-economic justice to dignity of life issues. Very to-the-point and essential.
