THE GREAT REFORMER Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope

by | Read by Austen Ivereigh

Biography & Memoir • 15.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

This biography enlightens listeners on both Pope Francis's life and the history of the Catholic Church. British journalist Austen Ivereigh provides a detailed and enthusiastic narrative that keeps the facts interesting and engaging. As narrator, he gives justice to the chronicle of important life events that reveal how Pope Francis acquired his current views and became the influential leader he is today. Anyone who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of Jorge Mario Bergoglio the man and to be shown the connection between his history and his actions as a religious leader will not be disappointed, as Ivereigh brings a sensibility that other biographies have not. This will be a smooth and engaging listen, even for the cynical. D.Z. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2015]
