The Francis Miracle : Inside the Transformation of the Pope and the Church by John L. Allen Jr.

There is no other organization whose inner workings are more secretive than the Vatican—the spiritual and physical center—of the Catholic Church. Now, with a dynamic new leader in Pope Francis, all eyes are upon the church, as this immensely popular Pope seeks to bring the church back from the right to center, in what can almost be described as a populist stance, blurring the lines between politics, religion and culture. With topics including women, finance, scandal, and reform at the fore, never before have so many eyes been upon the church in what could be its defining moment for modern times.

Now the most respected journalist covering the Vatican and the Catholic Church today, John L. Allen, reveals the inner workings of the Vatican to display the vast machinery, and the man at the helm in a way that no other writer can.

The Boston Globe has stated that John L. Allen “is basically the reporter that bishops and cardinals call to find out what’s going on within the confines of the Vatican.”

John L. Allen joined the staff of The Boston Globe in February 2014, to lead coverage of Catholicism and the Vatican. He is hailed as the best-sourced and most knowledgeable English-speaking journalist covering the Vatican today. Formerly, he was the senior correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter, and is a senior Vatican analyst for CNN. He is the author of several previous books on the Catholic Church, including two books on Pope Benedict XVI. Allen resides in Denver, but spends much of his time in Rome and on the road, giving speeches on the state of the church.
