After Pope Benedict XVI's historic renunciation of the papal office in February 2013, the College of Cardinals elected Jorge Mario Bergoglio -- now Pope Francis -- as the new leader of the world's estimated 1.2 billion Roman Catholics. But who is this new Pope -- really?In Francis, Pope of the New World, Michel Cool surveys Pope Francis's journey to the papacy, his convictions, his personality, and his writings, as well as the challenges he faces in his new office: the governance of the church, new evangelization in secularized societies, and poverty, among many others.Peppered throughout with anecdotes that demonstrate the humanity of Pope Francis -- and his sensitivity to those who are most distant from the Church -- this book paints a vibrant portrait of the man who has chosen for his motto miserando atque eligendo: "lowly but chosen."
