Vaticanista Andrea Tornielli explores Pope Francis and his strong, yet gentle personality . . .

TornielliFrancis: Pope of a New World
Andrea Tornielli
Ignatius Press, 2013
200 pages, $19.95 hardcover

Andrea Tornielli, one of the world’s most respected “Vaticanistas,” delves into the new Pope’s personality by examining the former cardinal’s words, ideas, and personal recollections — including material up to the final hours before his election. He reveals the strong, yet gentle and humble personality of this son of Italian immigrants to Argentina.

This insightful biography sheds light on the man who was a surprise — almost revolutionary —choice for pope. It’s the story of why the cardinal electors set aside political and diplomatic calculations to elect this man to lead the renewal and purification of the worldwide Church.
