Overview

Hasta su elección sin precedentes en el 2013, Elisabetta Piqué, escritora y amiga, le llamaba Padre Jorge. Aunque haya cambiado su nombre para convertirse en el Papa Francisco, su amistad no cambió.
 
Escrito en un estilo que vívidamente retrata episodios fascinantes y decisivos que nos revelan su influyente carácter y personalidad, El Papa Francisco: vida y revolución ofrece una visión única de la forma de pensar y sentir del Papa, de cómo trabaja en favor de los pobres y de su visión para la Iglesia. Piqué revela el lado personal del Papa Francisco: su libertad, valor, humildad, humanidad y sentido del humor, así como la profunda influencia espiritual que su formación jesuita ha tenido en el hombre que ahora guía la Iglesia católica.
 
Por encima de todo, El Papa Francisco: vida y revolución nos revela a un hombre que actúa de acuerdo a sus creencias. Es un líder espiritual firme en su amor por Dios, motivado por su alegría y paz interior, que nos puede inspirar a servir a los menos afortunados, los perdidos y los olvidados.



In Italy, they call him il Papa, which means “The Father.” Until his unprecedented election, author and friend Elisabetta Piqué called him Padre Jorge. He may have changed his name to become Pope Francis, but it did not change their friendship.

Since Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis in 2013, countless books have been written to help the world understand this deeply complex yet simple servant of God. What sets Pope Francis: Life and Revolution apart from all other biographies of Pope Francis is the careful research and original investigation behind it, along with the fact that it is written by an internationally respected journalist—Elisabetta Piqué—who has remained close to the Pope since first meeting him back in 2001.

Over 75 individuals were interviewed for Pope Francis: Life and Revolution, including lay people, priests, bishops, and cardinals who have known or worked with Francis at various times in his life. Insights from these people, as well as from friends and family members, allow us to see a profoundly personal side of the Pope. His humility and humanity, courage and conviction, and warmth and wisdom are revealed as Piqué shares little-known episodes from Francis’s life.

With a foreword by Cardinal Seán O’Malley, O.F.M. Cap., Pope Francis: Life and Revolution is the definitive resource and narrative of a man personally known by few and revered and respected by many.

Pope Francis: Life and Revolution reveals a man consistent in his beliefs and actions. He is a spiritual leader unwavering in his love for God, whose inner joy and peace move him—and can inspire us—to serve the least, the last, and the lost.
