Our friends at the Ethics and Public Policy Center (EPPC) have crafted a special web page, John Paul II in Words and Pictures, with links to this week’s published obituaries and remembrances of John Paul II by EPPC’s senior fellow, George Weigel, a biographer of the pope and leading American Catholic intellectual.

The site contains video excerpts from the film documentary, Witness to Hope, based on Weigel’s biography of John Paul II (also titled Witness to Hope) published to wide acclaim in 1999 (it’s not just a fascinating and inspiring story of a central figure of the past century, but a blueprint for traditional Christian leadership in the twenty-first century—if you haven’t read it, you ought to). There are also links to select lectures and articles on the pope.

Touchstone published Kent Hill’s review of Weigel’s Witness to Hope in our March 2001 edition.
