Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Joseph Girzone brings us a new hero for our time: Carlo Brunini. An accomplished young Italian bishop, Carlo chooses to become a homeless beggar so he can understand why Jesus so loved the poor. What happens next will astonish and delight readers everywhere.

When Carlo returns to his diocese in Italy he starts to build homes for the homeless. He adopts seven homeless children, asking his beloved cousin, Madalena, to be their mother, and turns a cold and empty mansion into a place of life and laughter. But Carlo, not of his own choice, becomes homeless once more: he is sent on a sensitive diplomatic mission to Iran.

As Carlo engages the powerful rulers of Iran, he suffers a devastating loss that comes to serve as a bridge between two worlds and the beginning of an even more extraordinary adventure for the homeless bishop.

Girzone's latest novel is a "what if" book that readers will not be able to put down. Like the beloved Joshua, Carlo is destined to be cherished for decades to come.

For our times!

It's interesting that this story actually parallels so many concerns of our current Holy Father, Pope Francis.
