Product DescriptionAfter years of research Dr. Matthew Bunson is giving readers "the first and most comprehensive perspective of the man, the man he replaces as Bishop of Rome, and the global challenges Pope Francis faces in the universal church". Pope Francis starts with the events and analysis of the resignation of Pope Benedict and continues with a complete biography of the new pope, Pope Francis. Speeches from the moment of his election to his installation are included as well as information about some of the symbolic items he has chosen such as his coat of arms. Pope Francis also includes a discussion of what lies ahead for the new pope as he copes with the issues the Church faces today. Pope Francis is not well known to much of the general public and this book, Pope Francis, introduces the reader through history, information and analysis to this new Pope and the challenges he faces as he takes on the leadership of the Catholic Church in the world today.
