Just finished this book. It is superb. An excellent text, immensely readable, and in fact 'unputdownable'. It's Vallely at his very best. He throws light on the shadow years of the 1970s and asks all the right questions. He recognizes and seeks to explain the man who changed (and allowed himself to change) and who has now become Bishop of Rome - making a clear option, to the astonishment of many, of a church for the poor, in the style of Oscar Romero, Helder Camara and the 'Pact of the Catacombs'.
