The Pope We Never Knew - Campus Crusade and John Paul II

I've posted a fair bit regarding the newly chosen Pope, but here's some little known history about the last Pope that helps explain why he is so popular with Evangelicals.

The Pope We Never Knew - Christianity Today Magazine has this untold and fascinating account of the long developing partnership between a Roman Catholic renewal movement in Poland and Campus Crusade for Christ. This was typical of the connections between the late Pope John Paul II and Protestant Evangelicals.

Whatever you and I might make of the theology or long term effects of this alliance, it is at the very least historic and profound.
