Pope John Paul II was a leader to millions of Catholics at a time of tremendous change. Promising a renewed church, he became a symbol of hope worldwide. Now, four years after his death, calls for his sainthood continue. But is this the whole truth? In The Power and the Glory, David Yallop explores the myths and half truths of John Paul II's long reign, revealing everything from the mismanagement of Vatican finance and the child sexual abuse crisis to the Vatican's role in the fall of Communism and the rise of the Opus Dei. Including explosive revelations from the CIA, the KGB, and the Vatican itself, The Power and the Glory is a bold and unflinching account of a beloved leader.
