Review: Pope John XXIII (Penguin Lives)

User Review  - Ben Lariccia - Goodreads

You get the history of the papacy in addition to John XXIII's bio. He's my favorite pope, a good man with insights on how to reform a church that badly needed it and still does. Read full review

Review: Pope John XXIII (Penguin Lives)

User Review  - Bonnie Carruth - Goodreads

Not a biography, the first chapter is a short history of the papacy. The rest is a informal memoir of a remarkable man and priest. The chapter on the Second Vatican Council shows the behind the scenes maneuvering of the Curia. Read full review
