After Pope Benedict XVI's historic resignation of the papal office in
2012, the College of Cardinals elected Jorge Mario Bergoglio — now Pope Francis
— as the new leader of the world's estimated 1.2 billion Roman Catholics.
But who is this new Pope — really?
In Francis, a New World
Pope, Michel Cool surveys Pope Francis's journey to the papacy, his
convictions, his personality, and his writings, as well as the challenges he
faces in his new office: the governance of the church, new evangelization in
secularized societies, and poverty, among many others.
throughout with anecdotes that demonstrate the humanity of Pope Francis — and
his sensitivity to those who are most distant from the Church — this book paints
a vibrant portrait of the man who has chosen for his motto miserando atque
eligendo: "lowly but chosen."
