KENGOR A POPE & A PRESIDENT
KENGOR A POPE & A PRESIDENT

Even as historians credit ­Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II with hastening the end of the Cold War, they have failed to recognize the depth or significance of the bond that developed between the two leaders. Acclaimed scholar, bestselling author, and GCC professor Paul Kengor changes that. In this fascinating book displaying his thorough knowledge of Ronald Reagan years of research, and unique access to Washington insiders, he reveals a singular bond—which included a spiritual connection between the Catholic Pope and the Protestant President—that drove the two men to confront what they knew to be the great evil of the twentieth century: Soviet Communism. Reagan and John Paul II almost didn’t have the opportunity to forge this relationship: just six weeks apart in the spring of 1981, they took bullets from would-be assassins. But their strikingly similar near-death experiences brought them close together—to Moscow’s dismay. Ronald Reagan and John Paul II united in pursuit of a supreme objective—and in doing so they changed history.
