Reviews - What do customers think about Words of Inspiration: The Private Prayers of Pope John Paul II?
Misleading title Feb 13, 2002
These are not prayers, but speaches. You'll need to be very spiritually advanced to listen to them. Valuable CD's under incorrect title. I bought this based on an newspaper ad by publisher.
Where are the Prayers? Dec 12, 2001
I, too, am disappointed in this book and will be returning it. I bought it as a gift thinking it was a collection of the Pope's prayers to God. Instead, I have a found a collection of speeches/papers/instructions to Secular Institutes asking them to "Love the Church" and "Challenge the Young." In the last chapter of the book, there were three actual prayers. Perhaps I allowed the book's title to misguide my expectations. The writing is lovely if you are looking for secular instruction, but don't expect to find the Pope's private prayers.
uplifting Dec 9, 2001
i found the book to be different from other Pope publications. to follow the Pope through out his journey as a great spirtual leader and the head of the vatican. To read his thoughts through out his travels and time as the Popei find to be very interesting and very englightening. i find the lay out of the book to be beautiful...........i'm glad i have it on my shelf and a bought a few for christmas presents.
A book about hope Dec 9, 2001
A beautifully written volume that has much to offer everyone and every religion. Truly inspiring words from a brilliant man. This is a book for the ages.
Disappointing Dec 3, 2001
Based on the description of this book I expected it to be much more personal or insightful than it turned out to be. I thought it would be somehow more personally touching or revealing than anything else that has been published before. As it happens, this is really just a collection of various words spoken and written by John Paul II through-out his papacy--It's not at all different from several other books I have already seen. And it doesn't seem as if the Pope had anything to do with this publication. I wish I could have said otherwise, but unfortunately this isn't worth adding to your shelf.
