5.0 out of 5 stars A very readable, balanced and hopeful book, 27 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pope Francis (Paperback)
This is far from a hagiography but its analytical, balanced approach reveals a complex man who does not conform to the usual liberal/conservative fault line. Vallely pulls no punches in examining critically the questionable role played by the then Father Bergoglio in Argentina's Dirty War but also shows a man who underwent a spiritual conversion and who to a large extent has embraced much of the Liberation Theology he previously denounced. In his analysis of the style and approach of the new pope, Vallely gives a renewed sense of hope about the future of the Catholic Church.
