    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...

    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...
