From the moment he became Pope, Karol Wojtyla sought political influence and a role on the world stage. At the dawn of the twenty-first century he seemed to embrace cultural change, promising a renewed church. Drawing on years of research and his contacts within the CIA, the KGB, the Polish secret service, and the Vatican itself, David Yallop uncovers the truth behind the propaganda. In his controversial and unflinching investigation, Yallop exposes lies and half truths surrounding the fall of Communism, the continued mismanagement of Vatican finance, the child abuse crisis, the rise of Opus Dei, and the myth of the "Holy Alliance" between the White House and the Vatican. Book jacket.

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.
