"Por primera vez, el papa Francisco cuenta la historia de su vida, revisitada a trav�s de los acontecimientos que han marcado a la humanidad en los �ltimos ochenta a�os, desde el estallido de la Segunda Guerra Mundial en 1939, cuando el futuro era un ni�o, hasta nuestros d�as.

Vida es un viaje extraordinario por la historia del mundo a trav�s de la mirada de un hombre excepcional. Con observaciones agudas y reflexiones profundas, el papa Francisco nos transporta a los sucesos m�s significativos de los �ltimos tiempos, desde el Holocausto hasta la ca�da del Muro de Berl�n, pasando por el golpe de Videla en la Argentina y el Mundial de 1968, cuando Maradona marc� el famoso gol de la �mano de Dios�.

Desde su mirada �nica, el pont�fice comparte en estas p�ginas sus recuerdos y reflexiones del Holocausto, las bombas at�micas de Hiroshima y Nagasaki, el ataque a las Torres Gemelas en 2001, la recesi�n econ�mica de 2008, la pandemia, la renuncia de Benedicto XVI y el c�nclave que lo eligi�. El �papa callejero� abre su ba�l de los recuerdos y, con la franqueza que lo caracteriza, nos transmite mensajes importantes sobre las principales crisis que nos confrontan hoy en d�a, entre otras, la desigualdad social, la crisis clim�tica, la guerra, la carrera armament�stica, la discriminaci�n y las luchas en favor de la vida.

�No hay que olvidar la lecci�n m�s importante: podemos releer la historia de nuestra vida para hacer memoria y poder transmitir algo a quien nos escucha. Pero, para aprender a vivir, todos tenemos que aprender a amar�. --Papa Francisco

For the first time, Pope Francis tells the story of his life as he looks back on the momentous world events that have changed history--from his earliest years during the outbreak of World War II in 1939 to the turmoil of today.

An extraordinary personal and historical journey, Life is the story of a man and a world in dramatic change. Pope Francis recalls his life through memories and observations of the most significant occurrences of the past eight decades, from the Holocaust to the fall of the Berlin Wall, Videla's coup in Argentina to the moon landing in 1969, and even the 1986 World Cup in which Maradona scored the unforgettable ""hand of God"" goal.

Here are the frank assessments and intimate insights of a pastor reflecting on the Nazi extermination of the Jews, the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the 2001 terrorist attack on America and the collapse of the Twin Towers, the great economic recession of 2008, the Covid-19 pandemic, the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI, and the subsequent conclave that elected him Pontiff. The ""pope callejero"" recounts these world-changing moments with the candor and compassion that distinguishes him, and offers important messages on major crises confronting us now, including social inequalities, climate change, international war, atomic weapons, racial discrimination, and the battles over social and cultural issues."
