    Chris Lowney has done it again! The author of ┬┐Heroic Leadership

    Chris Lowney has done it again! The author of “Heroic Leadership” (2005) and “Heroic Living” (2010) now gives us “Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads,” and it may be the best of a fine trio. It’s certainly the most topical. Francis’ simple ways and his consistent words have captured the attention of people everywhere – and not just Catholics. Obviously the world is hungry for moral leadership, and Francis is currently without peer in that department. Lowney is uniquely qualified to write about him for three reasons. First, having spent several years in Jesuit formation, he is an expert on the process that shaped Jorge Mario Bergoglio, S.J. from his earliest days and served as the arena in which he exercised much of his leadership before being elected pope. Second, Lowney is a seasoned student of the world, having spent 17 years with J.P. Morgan and served as a one of its managing partners on three continents. His work product is always relevant to people of all faiths and to those with no faith at all. Finally, he is fluent in Spanish, which gave him direct and immediate access to many Jesuits who studied and worked under the pope when he was the Jesuits’ superior in Argentina and later served as archbishop of Buenos Aires. Thus, Lowney is able to paint an intimate and revealing portrait of a man whose humility, vision and love for the poor have captured the world’s attention – and much of its heart. Despite all the unique research that underlies the text, the book is a bright and lively read that’s broken down into brief sections for the busy reader who can only devote a few minutes at a time to understanding what makes this pope tick. I’m grateful for having the opportunity to read it – and I think you will be too.

    A must read.

    Excellent book and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in leadership and helping our "neighbors." We need more of his beliefs and practices.
