Pope Francis: The Pope From the End of the Earth by Thomas J. Craughwell is the latest entry in the biographies of Pope Francis pushed out. This one is put out by Saint Benedict Press.
Having read some of Mr. Craughwell’s other books I was not surprised to find it nicely researched and well written. This book offers a fine balance of standard biographical information while also being peppered with personal stories from those who knew him. The three biographies on Pope Francis I have read all have a similar three chapter start with Pope Benedict XVI;s resignation, the conclave, and the papal election (not necessarily in that order). The focus then turns to the early years and up through his years as Cardinal of Buenos Aires.
The Hardcover version of this book is available for pre-order. The ebook versions are already available and look good if you have a color e-reading device such as an iPad.
