This thoughtful, lively introduction to Pope Francis’s life and his promising future in the Vatican details the historic event surrounding Pope Benedict XVI’s resignation, the subsequent election of Pope Francis, and the particulars of the new pope’s spirituality and thought. The book, jointly crafted by a Vatican Radio editor and journalist and the editor of the internet news service Catholic World News, artfully combines European and American perspectives and looks at the implications of the election of the first pope from the Americas who also is the first Jesuit pope in history.

This beautiful volume features an accessible format, anecdotes and additional background information broken into boxes, and full- color photography on nearly every page, all the while relating the gripping stories of a man who has confronted poverty, dictatorship, and revolution.
