Since his election to the papacy in 2013, Pope Francis has been hailed as a revolutionary, garnering affection from believers and non-believers alike with his simple, down-to-earth style. However, the new pope is a man of contradictions, with a divisive reputation as an authoritarian Provincial amongst his fellow Jesuits in Argentina. Pope Francis – The Sinner uses first-hand interviews with Bergoglio’s friends, contemporaries and students to explore his controversial past and the daunting task that lies ahead of him: to simultaneously reform the troubled Catholic Church and keep it from falling apart.
