A biography on Pope Francis will be published next year after a leading Roman Catholic commentator and founder of a pro-Catholic media organization acquired a deal.
Publisher Henry Holt announced it has acquired a book by Austen Ivereigh, a British journalist who helped found Catholic Voices, which seeks to improve how the church is presented in the news, Fox News report.
The publisher said that Ivereigh's biography will show that the Pope has pressed the ‘reset button’ for the church.
Pope Francis has made international news by saying the church should not spend too much time focusing on gay marriage and abortion and should concern itself more with the poor, the report said.
The book, currently untitled, is expected next year.
