"Massimo Faggioli’s important study of the current pope shows why he has focused on the marginalised in society and religious life"

In an era of polarisation, division and culture wars, Faggioli believes this passion for those who find themselves on the wrong side of a border makes Francis’s papacy a pivotal one for the age. As walls go up around the world, and the times become increasingly fearful and insular, it is hard to disagree. Academic in style, the Liminal Papacy is not an easy read, but it is an important one.
