Product Description

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.

Peppered 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."

Publisher's Description

After Pope Benedict XVI's historic resignation of the papal office in February 2013, the College of Cardinals elected Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires -- 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, his writings, and the challenges he faces in his new office -- governance of the church, new evangelization in secularized societies, and poverty, among many others.

Peppered 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."

Editorial Reviews

Robert Louis Wilken
"Here is a book on the new pope to be enjoyed now and cherished later. . . . What makes this book such a pleasure to read is that it includes selections from his earlier speeches and writings -- on the city of Buenos Aires, on the economy, on a girlfriend of his before he 'discovered [his] religious vocation,' on humility, on single mothers, on the tango, on soccer, and more. And then there are illuminating comments on the man from people in Argentina -- a lawyer, a student, a priest, and others. Francis, a New World Pope is a unique introduction to the man who is now Pope Francis."

Library Journal (STARRED review)
"Cool expertly addresses Francis's career as an archbishop and the matters that demand his attention now. . . . An intelligent and prudent guide to the new pope, . . . it will prove immensely helpful to Catholic and non-Catholic readers alike."

Ecumenism 
"Surveys Pope Francis’s journey to the papacy, his convictions, his personality, his writings, and the daunting challenges he faces. . . .  Peppered throughout with anecdotes that demonstrate the humanity of Pope Francis as well as his sensitivity to those on the fringes, this book paints a vibrant portrait of the man."
