About

Overview

A New York Times Bestseller

In his first book published as Pope, and in conjunction with the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, Pope Francis here invites all humanity to an intimate and personal dialogue on the subject closest to his heart — mercy — which has long been the cornerstone of his faith and is now the central teaching of his papacy.

"The name of God is mercy. There are no situations we cannot get out of, we are not condemned to sink into quicksand." — Pope Francis

Reviews

Customer Reviews

"In The Name of God Is Mercy, Francis speaks succinctly — and with refreshing forthrightness. . . . He emphasizes moral sincerity over dogma, an understanding of the complexities of the world and individual experience over rigid doctrine. . . . The pope has an easy conversational style that moves effortlessly between folksy sayings and erudite allusions, between common-sense logic and impassioned philosophical insights. "
