I couldn't help myself and skipped to the chapter about JPII's election. I found a very thorough and thoughtful analysis of Paul VI, Vatican II and his struggles towards the end of his papacy in the mid-1970s, a brief introduction to JPI's papacy that reflected the Albino Luciani's likability factor, his holiness and his ill health (no stupid conspiracy theories), and then an in depth look at JPII's papability, his last days in Krakow, and his subsequent election. I was VERY pleased with the balanced approach, the thoughtful nature of the prose, and the overall readability of the book. I am looking forward to reading the book as a whole, and already know I can highly recommend it!
Thank you so much. I probably would have skipped to that Chapter as well. I am putting this book down on the To Get list. I am very much devoted to Blessed Pope John Paul II and I like reading everything that I can get my hands on to read about him.
