Garry Wills With Rebecca Brown: Redefining The Catholic Church’S Future

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

From defense of migrant worker rights to tentative steps to welcome gays and lesbians into the faith, Pope Francis has made waves in the Catholic Church–and the world–with his audacious leadership and provocative pronouncements. In The Future of the Catholic Church with Pope Francis, New York Times bestselling historian Garry Wills (Why Priests?, Lincoln at Gettysburg) takes a hard look at whether the Catholic hierarchy is ready for change, and whether Pope Francis will be the one to bring it about. In conversation with author Rebecca Brown, Wills will analyze seven historical shifts in the Catholic church, applying these lessons to the current pope’s ongoing efforts to strengthen this community of believers, even as he considers the potential impact of his tenure on the world at large.
