Douglas Bushman, is doing a series of lectures for the Diocese of Fort Worth on John Paul II. It is a great way to get an intro to JPII from a scholar who knows him well. Bushman is one of the best theologians that few people have ever heard of. He best gift is making theology understandable and applicable. I highly recommend you give him a listen.
The three sessions already completed are entitled:
*Session I: Pope John Paul II on Vatican II and the New Evangelization
*Session II: Pope John Paul II on the Meaning of Life in Christ
*Session III: Pope John Paul II on Man in the Image and Likeness of God
You can listen to all of them here.
