Pope Francis Takes the Bus and Other Unexpected Stories tells stories "revealing the simple humility of the man whose spirituality and concern for others has transformed the Church and captured the imagination of Catholics and non-Catholics alike". The book has 80 heartwarming anecdotes from various stages of his life that show how he came to be a pope who lives a simpler life style from his choice of residence to his use of a small car to his less formal style of clothes. Chapters include topics like Confiding In Parents, Death, Kisses, Money and 76 more delightful stories showing how the Pope experienced these things in his own life.

The author, Rosario Carello, uses a fun A to Z format giving the reader stories written with warmth and humor. Giving little snippets from various episodes in the life of the Pope, from his early childhood through becoming Pope, the book is perfect for anyone who wishes to learn a little more about Pope Francis but doesn't want to read a full large biography. With the short but pertinent writings, the book would be a good resource for a religious education class.Pope Francis Takes the Bus will "serve as inspiration for anyone seeking a humbler, more Gospel-inspired daily life".
