John XXIII A Short Biography

SKU: 9781616367510
An ordinary man who became Pope and rejuvenated the Church.


Author: Kerry Walters

Nothing in the priesthood of Giuseppe Roncalli would suggest that he would one day be pope - let alone guide a Vatican council that would change the Church. Yet Pope John XXIII was on of the most important figures in the Catholic Church in the twentieth century, a man who would revitalize the Church in response to the needs of the modern world.

John XXIII: A Short Biography will give you new insight into this humble and gentle man whose life was lived in service of God and neighbor. It is a poignant illustration of the fact that sometimes the simplest of people can do the greatest of things with a sincere and faithful heart.
