Product description

TIME Magazine's Person of the Year: Pope Francis Learn about the First Jesuit Pope from America's Leading Jesuit Publisher""Pope Francis" by Chris Lowney is that rare and splendid work that leaves you keenly excited and spiritually moved. The writing is lucid, vivid, inviting, and rich. It's a major achievement. I strongly recommend it to any Christian in a leadership role." - Joseph Tetlow, SJFrom choosing to live in a simple apartment instead of the papal palace to washing the feet of men and women in a youth detention center, Pope Francis's actions contradict behaviors expected of a modern leader. Chris Lowney, a former Jesuit seminarian turned Managing Director for JP Morgan & Co., shows how the pope's words and deeds reveal spiritual principles that have prepared him to lead the Church and influence our world--a rapidly-changing world that requires leaders who value the human need for love, inspiration, and meaning. Drawing on interviews with people who knew him as Father Jorge Bergoglio, SJ, Lowney challenges assumptions about what it takes to be a great leader. In so doing, he reveals the "other-centered" leadership style of a man whose passion is to be with people rather than set apart. Lowney offers a stirring vision of leadership to which we can all aspire in our communities, churches, companies, and families.

Review quote

"Throughout my business career, I attributed my leadership preparedness to my Jesuit education. Chris Lowney aptly communicates the nuances of the Jesuit charism that inspires so many of us."- Michael R. QuinlanChariman Emeritus, McDonald's CorporationHonorary Chairman, Loyola University Chicago "Lowney's book was not only engaging; it upended my preconceptions. Here was someone who had not merely dipped his toes in the Ignatian tradition; he had swum in the ocean of it, then gone off to teach swimming in other pools."- Tim Muldoon, author of "The Ignatian Workout""Lowney, author of the best-selling book "Heroic Leadership", is eminently qualified to assess our dynamic new Pope's leadership style. As a former Jesuit seminarian, he understands St. Ignatius' spiritual exercises and their emphasis upon humility and service. As a businessman who has served as a managing director for J. P. Morgan on three continents, and as board chair of one of the nation's largest healthcare systems, he understands the menu of leadership styles from which leaders, even religious leaders, must choose.- Kathy Schiffer, "Seasons of Grace ""I have a master's degree in management and I've spent 18 years of my life holding a leadership position in the public sphere. I have never seen a better book on how a true leader gets people to follow him or her."- Rebecca Hamilton, 18-year member of the Oklahoma House of Representatives "A respectful examination that looks to both the past and the future, "Pope Francis: Why He Leads the Way He Leads" is inspirational from cover to cover." - James A. Cox, "The Midwest Book Review"
