Life: My Story Through History: Pope Francis''s Inspiring Biography Through History


By (author): Pope Francis

Translated by: Aubrey Botsford

For the first time, Pope Francis tells the story of his life as he looks back on the momentous world events that have changed historyfrom his earliest years during the outbreak of World War II in 1939 to the turmoil of today. 

An extraordinary personal and historical journey, Life is the story of a man and a world in dramatic change. Pope Francis recalls his life through memories and observations of the most significant occurrences of the past eight decades. The book opens with three-year-old Jorge in the kitchen with his mother in Argentina as World War II breaks out, and he goes on to witness several historic events:

  •         the fall of the Berlin Wall
  •         Videlas coup in Argentina
  •         the moon landing in 1969
  •         and even the 1986 World Cup in which Maradona scored the unforgettable hand of God goal.

Here are the frank assessments and intimate insights of a pastor reflecting on the Nazi extermination of the Jews, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the 2001 terrorist attack on America and the collapse of the Twin Towers, the great economic recession of 2008, the Covid-19 pandemic, the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI, and the subsequent conclave that elected him Pontiff.

The pope callejero recounts these world-changing moments with the candor and compassion that distinguishes him, and offers important messages on major crises confronting us now, including social inequalities, climate change, international war, atomic weapons, racial discrimination, and the battles over social and cultural issues.

Translated from the Italian by Aubrey Botsford
