Reviews - What do customers think about Praying With John Paul II (Companions for the Journey Ser)?
Faithful, Profound, and Practical! Dec 5, 2006
Jo and Keith Cobb have produced an important and timely book for anyone who is serious about growing in prayer. Praying with John Paul II is a fitting tribute to the legacy of His Holiness Pope John Paul II as well. Only true disciples of the late Holy Father could capture so clearly the essence of his vision. They've chosen fifteen key themes from the teaching of the Holy Father to serve as meditations, themes which were the fruit of his own "living dialogue" with God. For John Paul II, the key to genuine personal and corporeal renewal in the Church, indeed the secret to a "vital Christian life," can only be found through deep union with Jesus Christ in prayer. Jo and Keith remind us that John Paul II left us a bold challenge: to have the courage to "put out into the deep," to discover for ourselves the depth of union with God that is possible for every believer. This user-friendly book will serve as a practical guide to any person who seeks to respond to that bold challenge.

Highly Recommended Dec 4, 2006
"On April 2, 2005, a young woman called a national radio talk show host: `John Paul is the only pope I have ever known. I feel bereft; what do I do in my sorrow?' The talk show host responded: `Follow him. Live what he taught!' Reading the book Praying with John Paul II enables the reader to do exactly that. The fruit is to be more like Jesus. Every Catholic and dedicated Christian should own a copy!"
