A Pope Francis Lexicon
Edited by Cindy Wooden and Joshua J. McElwee

Forlaget Liturgical Press skriver:


A Pope Francis Lexicon is a collection of over fifty 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 Sr. Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, Fr. James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby, and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope's use of words like joy, clericalism, 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 advisors, Cardinal Seán O'Malley.

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

This brilliant collection fizzes with the tension and tumult of this most provocative and enigmatic of papacies. Francis-the top-down decentralizer, the champion of the peripheries who draws the world's attention to the personality at the center, the blunt speaker who leaves exasperated critics demanding tidiness and clarity-has triggered a creative commotion. No one writer has ever quite captured it; McElwee and Wooden's kaleidoscope comes close.Brendan
- Walsh, editor of London-based weekly Catholic journal The Tablet

What an interesting idea: ask a wide range of writers and thinkers to reflect on Pope Francis's words. The result: this collection of intelligent and accessible essays. This is a book to keep on the bedside table and delve into over and over again.
- Cokie Roberts, author and political commentator for NPR and ABC

A Pope Francis Lexicon is a compact yet comprehensive anthology of the themes that have come to define the Francis papacy. The diverse array of contributors make A Pope Francis Lexicon essential reading for anyone wishing to better understand the program of this "pope of many firsts."
