Powerful! Jul 20, 2007
A monumental work for humanity and Salvation. Pope John Paul II answers the questions of an Italian journalist with alacrity and succinctness. He carefully expresses his opinions that lifts the shadows off the Truth, revealing it with philosophical expertise.
The Holy Spirit was surely using Pope John Paul II to spread the message of Jesus Christ and answer many of the questions that Christians and secularists may have concerning God, life and religion.
A major work of Faith defining the Catholic Church and Christianity as a whole. The Pope shows his superior intellect at work. Great book!
God Bless JPII Jan 10, 2007
I have to say that I had much inspiration from this book. Not because I like JPII (RIP), but because of the way he approached religion and society. Every person has his own way of looking at the world, and it is illuminating to read what the leader of the Catholic Church has to say.
Shows the convictions of the former pope during his life time Jan 9, 2007
Many people believe that the former pope stood for the Word of God. If you read the book and honestly compare it's content with what the Bible says, you will find, that this was not true. Otherwise the book is a waist of time and it will be better spend if you read the Bible itself.
Theology Made Easy Jan 7, 2007
In this book, John Paul II has made a great effort to answer as efficiently all the questions presented in the book. Many of the theological concepts are explained in a simple fashion so that the average Catholic can easily understand the meaning of his words. If one has a good chunk of questions relating to the Church then this book is definitely worth being sought out.
EXCELLENT! Aug 31, 2006
