Descrizione prodotto


A meticulous and lovingly written biography that will please both knowledgeable and amateur readers. --Library Journal


A biography of Pope Francis that describes how this revolutionary thinker will use the power of his position to challenge and redirect one of the world's most formidable religions

An expansive and deeply contextual work, at its heart The Great Reformer is about the intersection of faith and politics--the tension between the pope's innovative vision for the Church and the obstacles he faces in an institution still strongly defined by its conservative past. Based on extensive interviews in Argentina and years of study of the Catholic Church, Ivereigh tells the story not only of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the remarkable man whose background and total commitment to the discernment of God's will transformed him into Pope Francis--but the story of why the Catholic Church chose him as their leader.
With the Francis Revolution just beginning, this biography will provide never-before-explained context on how one man's ambitious program began--and how it will likely end--through an investigation of Francis's youth growing up in Buenos Aires and the dramatic events during the Perón era that shaped his beliefs; his ongoing conflicts and disillusionment with the ensuing doctrines of an authoritarian and militaristic government in the 1970s; how his Jesuit training in Argentina and Chile gave him a unique understanding and advocacy for a "Church of the Poor"; and his rise from Cardinal to the papacy.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Must-Read to Understanding Pope Francis 21 aprile 2015
Di Tim Drake - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Austen Ivereigh has given us an insightful and informative look at the complicated and violent history that helped to shape Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis). The chapter "The Crucible" alone is worth the cost of the book, as it explains Bergoglio's role as provincial for the Jesuits in Argentina, walking a tight-rope between the military and guerrillas, both of whom were killing thousands of Argentinians, including members of the Church. It shows how he went out of his way, at great personal risk, to save the lives of others. Anyone concerned about the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, or the Synod on the Family, would do well to read this chapter and see that there's little to fear with Pope Francis in the lead. He is a man of the people and the poor, devoted to the Church and the faith. He is a reformer, but not one beholden to a political ideology. Rather, he reaches back to the roots in his efforts at reform, borrowing from the observations of Yves Congar that true reform comes not from the elite, but from the periphery. Ivereigh's book will be a difficult read for anyone not familiar with Argentinian history. The names and organizations are, at first, confusing. Still, this is a book well worth reading, as it provides captivating insights into who Pope Francis is, and the things/people/events that made him who he is.

5.0 su 5 stelle A Fast Paced Read 10 marzo 2015
Di Steven C. Porter - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Facsinating - who knew that there are "bergolismos" in the Spanish speaking world (words that Card Bergolio coined to express precise actions that had no word prior)? A lot of Argentine history to set the stage for the youth, formation, and early experiences of the man who became Papa Francisco, and which clearly colours his view of the world today. The concept of "pueblo fiel" as the ultimate deposit of God's truth rather than some committee, or quasi-governmental body, at the Vatican, explains his going out to the people and embracing them (quite literally in some cases!), explains his desire to be with the pueblo fiel whenever possible, and when not to be at least with the world as much as possible. It is an easy, but fast paced, read for someone with a historical interest, a little more attention needed to get the philosophical and theological intent of his pontificate, but worth the study.

THE GREAT REFORMER: FRANCIS IN THE MAKING OF A RADICAL POPE by Austin Ivereigh, Henry Holt and Company, 2014, 445 Pages
Austin Ivereigh writes a convincing life story of Pope Francis. Frank, Mary, Dylan and Jason gave this me this book for my birthday. Ivereigh shows how the conflict between the elite and the poor, between the liberals and conservatives, the military and Marxists and the pro-and anti-Peronists shaped the history of Argentina and the Argentine Catholic church. The ongoing and often violent fights educated Francis. While much of his wisdom, good genes, common sense and good nature came from a family of Italian immigrants and faithful Catholics, he got particular strength and wisdom from his grandmother Rosa. The Jesuits and their discipline added to his intellect and spirituality. Their arguments and politics were part of his increasingly polished intellect and political savey.
Pope Francis is equally critical of Marxism, fascism, socialism, capitalism, liberals and elitists. He regards capitalism and socialism as failed systems. Both lead to violence and social upheaval. Both failed to increase social justice.
He believed that the Catholic Church needed to reform and to reform from below. The indigenous and indigent should lead the reform. This is definitely not church reform imposed by the clergy or the pope. He believed in the collective wisdom of the people.
Apparently when you meet him, you feel; you have his full attention. He seems totally focused on you and your concerns. He is not a CEO who rushes through an interview to get to more “important” things.
In short he comes across as an intelligent, well disciplined, bright, warmhearted, decent and politically skillful human being. I think I would enjoy his company and enjoy discussing current Christianity, its problems and possible solutions, with him.
You also will come to understand more about the intricacies of the Catholic Church and its internal politics. You will see the interaction of the church with the elite, the powerful and the poor. You will respect the imposed and self-imposed discipline of the Jesuits. It is a harder discipline than the learning and practice of medicine. [...] It also becomes obvious that the Catholic Church is not a monolithic structure. Instead you see all the divisiveness, though the fights are less vicious then current American politics. Ah me, whatever else we are all human and mostly too human.
Organized Christian religion seems to have lost its way. We need a new Reformation. As in all human organization Christianity has become over supplied with detailed rules and leaders who have lost their and our way. We need a return to the simple beliefs and practices described by Christ. If we humans can do this, the future is assured. Pope Francis might be able to help us give birth to better future. I wish him well and I think his vision is appropriate for the current world.
My scotch ancestors gave up on the Catholic Church and became Presbyterians. My German ancestors followed Martin Luther out of the Catholic Church and became German Evangelical and Reform.
The Irish ancestors remained Catholic until my grandfather Klein forced my Irish grandmother to leave the church. She never stopped missing the church and I suspect one of the reasons my father was a serious agnostic, was sympathy with his mother.
If Pope Francis is able to help reform the Catholic Church, using the model he advocates, I probably will become Catholic. Frank

This is the best book on Pope Francis that I've read. It illustrates how profoundly immersed he is with "the people." He is truly a man whose ministry is "from below." Ivereigh illustrates time and again how the "discernment of spirits," steeped in the Gospels, is the fundamental template for Francis' decision making. So, it's no wonder he is doing and saying things contrary to a ministry "from above" and based on ideology (read here Pope JohnPaul and Benedict) rather than the Jesus of the Gospels. I found the book to be the best "retreat" experience I've had in a long time.

This is a well written and impeccably well researched book about the newest Catholic Pope, Francis. It is the story of a young man taught and formed by the Jesuit order, then shunned when he followed his spiritual call to cultivate his life after Jesus Christ, and prayer. It gives real hope to many millions of Catholics, who have been praying for reformation for years. With central beliefs of love and mercy, and LISTENING to God's holy people, the poor, destitute, and broken hearted, there is real hope for a Universal Church.
