How does a plot that involves the assassination attempts of a President Reagan and Pope John Paul II, KGB scheming, and CIA intrigue become the nal act to topple the Soviet Empire?
The Divine Plan dives deep into the pivotal bond between Pope John Paul II and President Ronald Reagan. Just six weeks apart in the spring of 1981, the pope and the president took bullets from would-be assassins. Surviving strikingly similar near-death experiences, they con ded to each other a shared conviction: that God had spared their lives for the purpose of defeating communism.
The Divine Plan draws on the lm’s exclusive interviews with renowned historians, schol- ars, journalists, and church of cials including well-known historians Douglas Brinkley, H.W. Brands, Anne Applebaum, John O’Sullivan, Craig Shirley (the leading biographer of John Paul II), George Weigel, close Reagan adviser Richard V. Allen, Cardinal Timothy Dolan and Bishop Robert Barron.
