Pope Francis publishes his first book

2016-01-11

Starting tomorrow, libraries from 84 countries will be selling a book whose author will surprise everyone.

The book is a conversation with the journalist, Andrea Tornielli, where he explained in detail some central issues of his pontificate and especially the act of Mercy. Hence the title: "The name of God is Mercy” and the funny thing is that the Pope has hand written the title in all editions.

It is not the first book-length interview with a Pope. In 2010, "Light of the World”, by Benedict XVI, was published following a series of long conversations with German journalist Peter Seewald.

In 1994, John Paul II published "Crossing the Threshold of Hope” after his meetings with Italian journalist Vittorio Messori.

It is a very practical yet effective way for a Pope to discuss current issues and the response of the Church. Pope Francis book will be presented in Rome by Vatican's Secretary of the State Pietro Parolin and Italian actor and director Roberto Benigni.
