Books by Pope Francis are the books that show us all the depth and breadth of Francis. Pope Francis projects his inner self and makes himself visible in his own words.
“Among the large number of publications that have appeared since [the election of Pope Francis], we do well to distinguish between books “about” the Pope and books “of” the Pope. It’s not that some are better and some are worse, but these two types of books really differ in nature. The books about the Pope satisfy the urgent demand for information and background about the [Pope,] while the Pope’s own books, of which Open Mind, Faithful Heart is the most prominent,] come directly from his own hand. .. These are the books that show us all the depth and breadth of Francis. It is in these books that the author projects his inner self and makes himself visible in his own words.”
– Gustavo Larrázabal, CFM, longtime editor and friend of the Pope in Argentina
