A POPE AND A PRESIDENT
JOHN PAUL II, RONALD REAGAN, AND THE EXTRAORDINARY UNTOLD STORY OF THE 20TH CENTURY. Acclaimed scholar, author and Cold War historian Paul Kengor writes about the untold story of the partnership between Pope John Paul II and Ronald Reagan and how their singular bond drove them to confront the great evil of the twentieth century: Soviet communism. This congeniality included a spiritual connection between the Catholic pope and the Protestant president, both of which took bullets from would-be assassins, just 6 weeks apart. Read Paul's tireless archival digging and years of research. Hardcover. 648 pages.
