Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Book! I pre-order this book, and I am glad I did. John Allen brings to light what the world was always curious about the new pope. The present Pope is long needed not only in the Roman Catholic BUT the whole world. Pope Frances lives out what Jesus Christ asked of us. Pope Frances does not surrogate any people, he includes all Christianity even Evangelical Christians, Muslin, Eastern Orthodox. He is changing the world that is needed for all people. He shows love to everyone. He is dealing with the politics of the church and implementing changes. Pope Frances is truly present and alive.
