New World Pope
Pope Francis and the Future of the Church
Imprint: Cascade Books
"Books about Pope Francis understandably proliferated as his charisma ignited responses from around the globe. New World Pope is distinguished by the range of perspectives among its authors, from journalist to theologian, Jewish rabbi to Catholic cardinal, biblical to Ignatian reflection. Together the authors present an insightful portrait of Francis' past formation, present vision, and, most importantly, the trajectory of his future impact on the church and on the world."
--Timothy Matovina, University of Notre Dame
"This volume offers us great insight into this somewhat confusing or surprising figure. We are enlightened and challenged by the essays in this volume; challenged to confront Francis' call for 'pastoral conversion.' Yet this volume . . . does not lapse into the adolescent temptation of suggesting complete rupture. Rather, the continuity . . . is clearly outlined. I could not recommend this collection highly enough."
--Conor Cunningham, author of Darwin's Pious Idea: Why the Ultra Darwinists and Creationists both Get it Wrong
