From Bergoglio's coming of age in the Peronist era and his role in Argentina's darkest period, the Dirty War, to his volatile relationship with the Kirchners, and his views on everything from same-sex marriage and abortion to women's issues and the crisis of world poverty, this book addresses the all of the key issues facing the new leader of the largest religious organization in the world.
Francis: A Pope for Our Time provides a concise look at the history and politics that have consumed Latin America, Argentina, and the Church, breaking the cult of secrecy that has long plagued the region as well as the institution. As Pope Francis has ignited a profound sense of pride in his compatriots, the authors describe the tremendous influence that Latin America stands to bring to the world stage.
Known as the Black Pope (for his Jesuit garb), the Pope of the Poor, and the Third World Pope, such monikers exemplify Pope Francis' commitment to society's most underprivileged and disenfranchised. In Francis: A Pope for Our Time, the authors bring clarity to the man and his work: his dedication to interreligious dialogue, accessibility to his community, and rejection of lavish excess in favor of simplicity that promises to bring real-world leadership to a modern Church desperate to emerge from old-world precepts.
