Summary

Key Words of Pope Francis is a collection of over 50 essays by an impressive set of insightful contributors from around the globe, each writing on a specific word that has become important in the ministry of Pope Francis. Writers such as Fr Timothy Radcliffe, Archbishop Justin Welby, Sr Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, Fr James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope's use of words like joy, clericalism, field hospital, money, family and tears. Together, they reveal what Francis's use of these words says about him, his ministry and priorities, and their significance to the church, the world, and the lives of individual Christians. The entire collection is introduced by a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Christians worldwide, and a preface by one of Francis's closest advisers, Cardinal Seán O'Malley.

This is no set of encyclopaedia entries. It is instead a reflective, inspiring, and often heartfelt book that offers engaging answers to the question 'What is this surprising Pope up to?'
