Pope Francis : Hero of Africa Paperback / softback
by Jerry Jumbam
This book is for, firstly, the African people and, secondly, those who are concerned about the suffering of the poor peoples of the earth. In Pope Francis, Hero of Africa, Jerry Jumbam discusses the hostility of some people to Pope Francis (especially in Church circles) as a result of ignorance of the background of the Pope and of who he represents on a global scale.
Jumbam explores the Pope's underprivileged background and how his word and deed have pervasive influence on the similarly underprivileged people of the world.
The book underlines the fact these people should not be underestimated or ignored in matters concerning world leadership. Jumbam also highlights the beauty and challenges of African Christianity and reminds the world that Africa is not a latecomer to Christianity.
