Now a New York Times best seller! If you could ask Pope Francis one question, what would it be? Children have questions and struggles just like adults, but rarely are they given the chance to voice their concerns and ask the big questions resting deep in their hearts. In Dear Pope Francis, Pope Francis gives them that chance and celebrates their spiritual depth by directly answering questions from children around the world. Some are fun. Some are serious. And some will quietly break your heart. But all of them are from children who deserve to know and feel God’s unconditional love. Also available in Spanish as Querido Papa Francisco. "Feels akin to sitting in on a series of intimate conversations." -Publishers Weekly "The People's Pope shows that he is a down-to-earth man who understands both religion and children." -Kirkus Reviews

When he spoke to the hundreds of thousands of pilgrims who gathered in Kraków for World Youth Day 2016, Pope Francis pointed out to young people the dangers of apathy and materialism, inviting them to leave a mark on history by being proactive in following Jesus, transforming our broken world.

The election of Pope Francis in March 2013 marked an important moment within the Roman Catholic Church, a moment of continuities and discontinuities. On the one hand he is the first Latin American and the first Jesuit to be elected to lead his Church; on the other hand he provides continuity through a focus on the needs of the poor that goes back to John XXIII and Vatican II. A traditional thinker, theologically speaking, since being elected he has spoken repeatedly of the need for the Church to be poor and to serve the poor. This is the first biography of the Pope to analyse his life and thought in the light of both Argentinean history and the original Spanish texts of his writings, speeches and homilies. Written by a world authority on Latin American religion and politics, Pope Francis looks at Bergoglio’s development as a Jesuit and as a bishop from a Latin American perspective, relating his actions and homilies to the ecclesial developments in Latin America since Vatican II. Thus, important markers are the Bishop’s conferences of Medellin, Puebla, Santo Domingo and Aparecida, as well as the controversy surrounding his actions during the Argentinean ‘dirty war’ when the military junta ruled Argentina in the 1970s and 80s. Francis is a Latin American and as Pope he is better understood personally, intellectually and theologically by using a frame of reference that examines his role within the changes in the Roman Catholic Church in Latin America over the past 50 years.

From his first appearance on a Vatican balcony Pope Francis proved himself a Pope of Surprises. With a series of potent gestures, history's first Jesuit pope declared a mission to restore authenticity and integrity to a Catholic Church bedevilled by sex abuse and secrecy, intrigue and in-fighting, ambition and arrogance. He declared it should be 'a poor Church, for the poor'. But there is a hidden past to this modest man with the winning smile. Jorge Mario Bergoglio was previously a bitterly divisive figure. His decade as leader of Argentina's Jesuits left the religious order deeply split. And his behaviour during Argentina's Dirty War, when military death squads snatched innocent people from the streets, raised serious questions – on which this book casts new light. Yet something dramatic then happened to Jorge Mario Bergoglio. He underwent an extraordinary transformation. After a time of exile he re-emerged having turned from a conservative authoritarian into a humble friend of the poor – and became Bishop of the Slums, making enemies among Argentina's political classes in the process. For Pope Francis – Untying the Knots, Paul Vallely travelled to Argentina and Rome to meet Bergoglio's intimates over the last four decades. His book charts a remarkable journey. It reveals what changed the man who was to become Pope Francis – from a reactionary into the revolutionary who is unnerving Rome's clerical careerists with the extent of his behind-the-scenes changes. In this perceptive portrait Paul Vallely offers both new evidence and penetrating insights into the kind of pope Francis could become.
