Pope Francis has thoroughly re-engaged the Catholic Church with the modern world, by tackling the difficult and urgent questions that we face as a civilization, in order to illuminate the path to change. French sociologist Dominique Wolton interviewed Pope Francis regularly over the course of a year, and their open, warm dialogue builds a detailed picture of how Pope Francis became the most popular leader the Catholic Church has ever seen.
The Pope's clarity, humility and humanity are brought to the fore by Dominique Wolton's engaging and relevant questions. As well as revealing fascinating insights into his early life, in The Path to Change Pope Francis freely addresses the major issues of our time: peace and war, politics and religion, globalization and cultural diversity, fundamentalism and secularism, Europe and migrants, ecology, family, time, trust and joy.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, was elected Pope under the name of Francis on March 11, 2013. He is the first Jesuit and Latin American Pope in the history of the Church.
Dominique Wolton is a sociologist and research director at the French National Centre for Scientific Research. He is the founder and director of the international journal Hermes and is the author of thirty books, translated into twenty languages.
