📒Wounded Shepherd ✍ Austen Ivereigh
✏Wounded Shepherd Book Summary : Following his critically acclaimed The Great Reformer, Austen Ivereigh's colorful, clear-eyed portrait of Pope Francis takes us inside the Vatican's urgent debate over the future of the church in Wounded Shepherd. This deeply contextual biography centers on the tensions generated by the pope’s attempt to turn the Church away from power and tradition and outwards to engage humanity with God’s mercy. Through battles with corrupt bankers and worldly cardinals, in turbulent meetings and on global trips, history’s first Latin-American pope has attempted to reshape the Church to evangelize the contemporary age. At the same time, he has stirred other leaders’ deep-seated fear that the Church is capitulating to modernity—leaders who have challenged his bid to create a more welcoming, attentive institution. Facing rebellions over his allowing sacraments for the divorced and his attempt to create a more "ecological" Catholicism, as well as a firestorm of criticism for the Church’s record on sexual abuse, Francis emerges as a leader of remarkable vision and skill with a relentless spiritual focus—a leader who is at peace in the turmoil surrounding him. With entertaining anecdotes, insider accounts, and expert analysis, Ivereigh’s journey through the key episodes of Francis’s reform in Rome and the wider Church brings into sharp focus the frustrations and fury, as well as the joys and successes, of one of the most remarkable pontificates of the contemporary age.

📒Pope Francis ✍ Giuseppe Costa
✏Pope Francis Book Summary : A not to be missed volume about the man who is revolutionizing the Catholic Church and the role of the papacy, an extraordinary collection of the pope's most beautiful phrases and quotations, asking us to focus 'on the essentials, on the necessary things: this is also what fascinates and attracts more, what makes the heart burn'. The words of Pope Francis, which form the support structure of the book, touch the hearts of all, believers or not. Turning these pages, one feels as though partaking in his vision of life and faith, of the content that animates preaching. Words that, together with the images accompanying this moving portrayal of the first months of his papacy, lead straight to the heart of his message: a message of love addressed to everyone and, with still more attentive and affectionate concern, to all those who have lost the meaning of life or are experiencing especially difficult circumstances. What emerges in all its fullness is the limpid gaze with which the new pope observes the world and the Church, which he wants capable of showing the face of closeness and of mercy, since 'to accompany with mercy' is the duty it must set (and that of its ministers): 'Let us be enveloped by the mercy of God; let us trust in His patience, which always gives us more time [...] We will feel His wonderful tenderness, we will feel His embrace, and we too will become more capable of mercy, patience, forgiveness and love.' In the words of Pope Francis, one perceives with extreme clarity the call to the most true and profound values of being Christian. The first successor to Peter coming from the ranks of the Jesuit Order, he has always condemned unjust distribution of wealth, economic inequality and poverty as true human rights violations, like a 'social sin' that robs many brothers and sisters all over the world of the chance to enjoy a full life. And for this 'debt' he demands an ethical and united response. In this volume, which gathers the pope's most authentic message, you will therefore not encounter a tumult of condemnations or sterile prohibitions, nor a long list of precepts, too often ignored in daily life, even by those who are living the faith. Instead, you will find an appeal to not slip away from the true mission of the Church, called to be the bearer of the announcement at the foundation of the Christian faith: the salvific love of God and salvation through Jesus Christ. 150 colour photographs

📒Key Words Of Pope Francis ✍ Joshua J. McElwee
✏Key Words of Pope Francis Book Summary : Key Words of Pope Francis is a collection of over 50 essays by an impressive set of insightful contributors from around the globe, each writing on a specific word that has become important in the ministry of Pope Francis. Writers such as Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Archbishop Justin Welby, Sr Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, Fr James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope's use of words like joy, clericalism, field hospital, money, family and tears. Together, they reveal what Francis's use of these words says about him, his ministry and priorities, and their significance to the church, the world, and the lives of individual Christians. The entire collection is introduced by a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Christians worldwide, and a preface by one of Francis's closest advisers, Cardinal Seán O'Malley. This is no set of encyclopaedia entries. It is instead a reflective, inspiring, and often heartfelt book that offers engaging answers to the question 'What is this surprising Pope up to?'

📒Pope Francis Conversations With Jorge Bergoglio ✍ Sergio Rubin
✏Pope Francis Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio Book Summary : Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was chosen as the next Pope in one of the shortest conclaves in history. He is the first Pope Francis, the first Jesuit Pope, the first Pope to come from Latin America. Who is this man, and how did he come to such high position? This book begins with the arrival of Bergoglio's family in Buenos Aires in 1929, travelling from Italy, explores his childhood as one of a family of five, his first job as a factory cleaner and the bout of pneumonia which forced him to reassess his life completely. Then from his early days as a seminarian through his experience as a teacher of psychology and literature, through to his consecration as a cardinal by Pope John Paul II, Bergoglio shares his experiences of faith and life. The difficult subjects are met head on, from the declining numbers of priests to celibacy and even the sex abuse scandals that have rocked the church - and through it all, Bergoglio's humble approach and desire to live an austere and faithful life shine through. This is a Pope who will not allow himself to be fitted to a traditional mould - and the world waits with bated breath to see what his time as leader of the world's largest church will bring.
📒Discovering Pope Francis ✍ Brian Y Lee
✏Discovering Pope Francis Book Summary : The dangerous tendency to reduce theological positions to political ones has always fueled divisions in the Church, and it plagues debates surrounding Pope Francis's teaching today. This collection of essays was born of a landmark international symposium designed to promote theological understanding by contextualizing the thought of Pope Francis—from his understanding of history to his theology of mission—within important theological conversations rarely heard in the US Catholic Church. Its contributors demonstrate decisively that Pope Francis's magisterium is the fruit of a profound and distinctive, yet deeply Catholic, intellectual engagement with the theological and ecclesial traditions of the Church. Contributors include: Austen Ivereigh, Archbishop Christophe Pierre, Rodrigo Guerra López, Bishop Robert Barron, Massimo Borghesi, Susan K. Wood, SCL, Rocco Buttiglione, Guzmán Carriquiry Lecour, Peter J. Casarella, Brian Y. Lee, Thomas L. Knoebel
