Item Description...
Although it will not be possible to measure the effects of his papacy for decades, we nevertheless stand in wonder at his accomplishments and the breadth of his worldwide ministry. Numerous biographies have told the story of the bishop of Cracow, the brilliant university professor, and the young Polish priest. But what of the boy born in Wadowice and his more private life? What about the Stories of Karol? This book tells the story of the future pontiff from a new perspective - a perspective that allows us to meet him and know him as "Karol." We enter his life in a most intimate way when we are introduced to his family and friends, and as we come to understand the call of his priestly ministry. Stories of Karol is an unprecedented opportunity to meet the once future pope in a personal encounter as a friend and as a person.

Publishers Description
Countless biographies have been written about Pope John Paul II. In this volume a well-known Vatican insider reveals new details about Karol Wojtyla's youth, from his birth to his election to the papacy. This short, readable book chronicles the young life and personal development of this popular and beloved man through stories about his family, his vocation, and his intellectual training. It is enjoyable reading for adults and young people.
"Stories of Karol: The Unknown Life of John Paul II" originated as a 20-part radio program that aired from January to March 2001 and was narrated by the author himself. It was also the inspiration behind the Hallmark channel movie, "A Man Who Became Pope."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Humanity in the Man Who Would Be Pope  Mar 16, 2006
Because I had seen the Hallmark Channel's production of the early years of John Paul II and was frustrated by my inability at that time to obtain a copy, I went looking for the book. It is a very fast read, very hard to put down. A wonderful experience if you are intersted in the events that helped to form John Paul II's huumanity. You are able to learn about his personal life as a child and the tragic events that led him to his decision to enter the priesthood. An excellent first book for those wanting to know more or for anyone wanting to start at the beginning of the life of this incredible human being.
Intriguing story of a remarkable life  Sep 17, 2005
The stories and trials of the young man who would be Pope were remarkable. I could not put it down. Read the book in a day and re-read most of it the following day. It was wonderful to understand why John Paul II was so darn passionate about human rights and the unborn. Unfortuately, our modern school curricula do not spend nearly enough time on the hardships endured under Communism and Nazism. This book will give you a first hand insight into how both political systems tormented young Karol for caring about his country and the Jewish people.
LOVED IT... LOVED IT... LOVED IT...  Jan 31, 2004
I received this book as a Christmas gift. It was amazing. It does read as more of a history book but does a wonderful job illustrating how Pope John Paul II was directly affected by WWII and the holocaust and how be came to receive God's calling.
Save Your Money!  Aug 25, 2003
I purchased this book hoping to get little glimpses into the life of Pope John Paul II before he became Pope. What I got was the story of Poland during WW II. Very, very disappointing.
