9781630060022: Francis: A Pope for Our Time: The Definitive Biography

The Catholic Church has been undoubtedly going through a period of profound crisis. Endless scandals and conspiracies have plagued the Church in recent years, and with resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in February 2013, the Catholic community was left in dire need of direction and spiritual renewal.
Archbishop Jorge Bergoglio, elected to Saint Peter’s Throne on March 13, 2013, in one of the briefest conclaves in history, represents a rekindled sense of hope for the Church’s 1.2 billion followers. The first Jesuit to occupy the papacy, Pope Francis I is also the first pope ever to hail from the Americas, and has inspired an enormous sense of pride, especially among Latin Americans and his native Argentina.
Francis: A Pope for Our Time, The Definitive Biography incisively chronicles Pope Francis’ ancestry, youth, call to faith, humble beginnings with the Society of Jesus, and rise through Argentina’s ecclesiastical ranks, all the way to the Vatican. The book emphasizes His Holiness’ Jesuit background of humility, poverty, and service that stands to reform the Vatican’s long history of lavish excess and removed otherworldly style of leadership.
This concise biography also details Jorge Bergoglio’s coming of age during the Peronist years, the challenges he faced throughout Argentina’s brutal military dictatorship, as well as his political stance against the progressive policies of the Kirchners.
Known as the Black Pope” (for his Jesuit garb), the Pope of the Poor,” and the Third World Pope,” such monikers exemplify Pope Francis’ original and primary mandate: his pastoral commitment to society’s most underprivileged and disenfranchised. His dedication to interreligious dialogue, accessibility to his community, and rejection of pomp in favor of simplicity promises to bring real-world leadership to a modern Church desperate to emerge from old-world precepts.

Descripción Humanix Books, United States, 2013. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. An incisive look at Jorge Bergoglio s rise through the ecclesiastical ranks, all the way to Saint Peter s Throne is presented in the upcoming book Francis: A Pope for Our Time, The Definitive Biography, . Authored by two highly-esteemed Argentine journalists, the book provides an in-depth analysis of Pope Francis youth, influences, doctrine, and potential to inspire a renewal of faith, not only within the Catholic Church, but the world-over. From Bergoglio s coming of age in the Peronist era and his role in Argentina s darkest period, the Dirty War, to his volatile relationship with the Kirchners, and his views on everything from same-sex marriage and abortion to women s issues and the crisis of world poverty, this book addresses the all of the key issues facing the new leader of the largest religious organization in the world. Francis: A Pope for Our Time provides a concise look at the history and politics that have consumed Latin America, Argentina, and the Church, breaking the cult of secrecy that has long plagued the region as well as the institution. As Pope Francis has ignited a profound sense of pride in his compatriots, the authors describe the tremendous influence that Latin America stands to bring to the world stage. Known as the Black Pope (for his Jesuit garb), the Pope of the Poor, and the Third World Pope, such monikers exemplify Pope Francis commitment to society s most underprivileged and disenfranchised. In Francis: A Pope for Our Time, the authors bring clarity to the man and his work: his dedication to interreligious dialogue, accessibility to his community, and rejection of lavish excess in favor of simplicity that promises to bring real-world leadership to a modern Church desperate to emerge from old-world precepts.
