I BELIEVE: The Promise of the Creed
Pope Francis; Editor: Stefan von Kempis
Drawn from his writings, interviews, and homilies, I Believe provides an intimate window on the Pope’s personal faith, and an incomparable introduction to the gospel.
Organized around the principle themes of the Apostles' Creed, these short readings make it clear that the Creed is more than a list of dogmatic propositions; it is an invitation to encounter the living God in the deepest place in our hearts. And that encounter inspires us to action: to give witness, to practice greater charity, to live in the truth.
The Pope’s words are also a challenge—to meet the God of surprises, who makes all things new, who accompanies us on our journey. For anyone seeking a more authentic life, this is a book to carry and treasure.

POPE FRANCIS AND THE THEOLOGY OF THE PEOPLE
Pope Francis has offered a bold challenge to an “economy that kills,” identifying in particular a form of globalization that turns people into disposable consumers and increases the widening gap between the rich and poor.
In doing so, he has drawn not only from the social teaching of the Latin American Church, but also in a particular way from a school of theology that arose in Argentina called “Theology of the People.” A type of liberation theology, it emphasizes respect for the culture and popular religious expressions of the poor.
