    Apparently lapsed Catholics are the 4th largest ?religious? group in the US, behind Protestant, Catholic and ?nothing in particular?. This book really encapsulates all the reasons why, while also offering insight into both Pope Benedict and Pope Francis and their core tenants o...

    Good read. Provides theological context and back story to Benedict and Francis. Can't wait for the movie. From the epilogue: Why were these resignation letters sent to Ratzinger left unsigned by him? It seems quite possible that Benedict, after deciding he would step down, chose...

    Excellent history on these two men, Benedict and Francis. The backgrounds of both of these men surprised me. The author did an excellent job of comparing and contrasting them. As well, he explains some of the decisions made by both. A clearly written history that leads us to where we a...

    I give this book five stars plus a few more! This is so well-written and interesting. If only all non-fiction books could be as well-written, I would be happy. All these authors acting as if they're writing a fluff piece for People magazine could take a lesson from Mr. McCarten! ...

    Surprisingly very interesting. I didn't particularly want to know more about Francis of Benedict but the book caught my eye and it ignited my interest after reading a couple of pages. I never really realized the uniqueness of the fact there are actually two popes at this moment and ...

    It?s a fascinating and revealing tale of an unprecedented transfer of power, and of two very different men ? who happen to live in the Vatican. In February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI did what no pope had done in hundreds of years: He resigned, leaving the world with two living pope...

    Anthony McCarten was brought to fame by his nonfiction book Darkest Hour which got Gary Oldman an Oscar after he transformed himself into a Victorian Englishman, and by his screenplay, The Theory of Everything, which nearly offered the same accolade to Eddie Redmayne. McCarten is clea...
