This behind-the-scene look of the new papacy includes unprecedented, exclusive access to Pope Francis. Embedded with the Pope inside the Vatican for 6 months, award-winning photographer David Yoder captures intimate moments in never-before-seen photographs presented here for the first time—including in the Sistine Chapel with the Pope alone on Christmas Day. These extraordinary images reveal the majesty and splendor of the Vatican alongside the humbleness of the man changing it. The pontiff's public life and personal crusades are exposed as never before, as well as the inner workings of the Vatican. The book also features a timeline, maps, and Pope Francis's most inspiring words of wisdom. The "people's Pope" has electrified the world with his message of mercy and humility, energizing the Catholic Church and appealing to people of every faith. Vivid reporting and world-class photography present a captivating view of Pope Francis and his remarkable papacy. This glorious celebration of the new pontiff is a lasting keepsake of a historic event.
