A Pope Francis Lexicon is a collection of over fifty essays by an impressive set of insightful contributors from around the globe, each writing on a specific word that has become important in the ministry of Pope Francis. Writers such as Sr. Simone Campbell, Cardinal Blase Cupich, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, Fr. James Martin, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle, Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby, and Carolyn Woo explore the Pope's use of words like joy, clericalism, money, family, and tears. Together, they reveal what Francis's use of these words says about him, his ministry and priorities, and their significance to the church, the world, and the lives of individual Christians. The entire collection is introduced by a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, the spiritual leader of Orthodox Christians worldwide.

This is no set of encyclopedia entries. It's a reflective, inspiring, and often heartfelt book that offers engaging answers to the question "What is this surprising Pope up to?"

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book transcends mere words.
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew


This book transcends mere words.
Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew


What an interesting idea: ask a wide range of writers and thinkers to reflect on Pope Francis's words. The result: this collection of intelligent and accessible essays. This is a book to keep on the bedside table and delve into over and over again.
Cokie Roberts, author and political commentator for NPR and ABC


This brilliant collection fizzes with the tension and tumult of this most provocative and enigmatic of papacies. Francis--the top-down decentralizer, the champion of the peripheries who draws the world's attention to the personality at the center, the blunt speaker who leaves exasperated critics demanding tidiness and clarity--has triggered a creative commotion. No one writer has ever quite captured it; McElwee and Wooden's kaleidoscope comes close.
Brendan Walsh, editor of London-based weekly Catholic journal The Tablet


A Pope Francis Lexicon is a compact yet comprehensive anthology of the themes that have come to define the Francis papacy. The diverse array of contributors make A Pope Francis Lexicon essential reading for anyone wishing to better understand the program of this 'pope of many firsts.'
Gretchen R. Crowe, editor of Our Sunday Visitor and author of Why the Rosary, Why Now?

Joshua J. McElwee and Cindy Wooden have brought together an outstanding collection of writings on Pope Francis' leadership from major figures in the Church and wider Catholic life. A Pope Francis Lexicon is a valuable guide to the words and ideas that form the foundation of Francis' papacy. It rightly belongs on the shelf of anyone interested in the direction of the Catholic Church today.E.J. Dionne Jr., co-author of One Nation After Trump and senior fellow at the Brookings Institution
