Overview

Best-selling author Joseph Girzone brings us a new hero for our time: Carlo Brunini. An accomplished young Italian bishop, Carlo chooses to become a homeless beggar so he can understand why Jesus so loved the poor. What happens next will astonish and delight readers everywhere. When Carlo returns to his diocese in Italy he starts to build homes for the homeless. He adopts seven homeless children, asking his beloved cousin, Madalena, to be their mother, and turns a cold and empty mansion into a place of life and laughter. But Carlo, not of his own choice, becomes homeless once more: he is sent on a sensitive diplomatic mission to Iran. As Carlo engages the powerful rulers of Iran, he suffers a devastating loss that comes to serve as a bridge between two worlds and the beginning of an even more extraordinary adventure for the homeless bishop. Girzone s latest novel is a "what if" book that readers will not be able to put down. Like the beloved Joshua, Carlo is destined to be cherished for decades to come.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Carlo Brunini is an Italian bishop who wants to understand why Jesus loved the poor. He takes an 18-month sabbatical and moves to New York City to live among them and as one of them. His journey takes him into the home of Mexican immigrants and to Albany to live as a squatter. He eventually returns to Italy and becomes a cardinal. VERDICT Former priest and million-dollar author of the "Joshua" series Girzone's legions of elderly fans are reportedly dwindling. This latest novel should win him admirers for its upbeat tone and well-developed characters if librarians and booksellers are willing to hand it to a new generation of readers. Recommend it to fans of Lynne Hinton.

    Highly Recommended - Incredibly Inspiring Story!

    The Homeless Bishop is an incredibly inspiring story! What a gift Girzone has for weaving the yearning in our hearts into a tapestry of what could be possible. I couldn't stop crying at the end.

    Carlo is the ideal leader, manifesting Christ consciousness in all his thoughts, words, and actions. My heart aches for such leaders to find their way into positions where they can make a difference -- but, alas, there are so few such leaders and even fewer who make it into leadership positions.

    This story is a welcome expression of hope! It is so encouraging
