Now in paperback: the surprising new novel from Joseph Girzone that “should win him a new generation of readers.” —Library Journal
What if a brilliant young Italian bishop came to New York to live as a homeless beggar to better understand why Jesus so loved the poor? What adventures would he get into? What would he learn? How would he change the church?
“The Homeless Bishop is a ‘what-if’ novel that you won’t be able to put down! If you love the church but have grown tired of too many scandals, then Carlo, aka Charlie, the homeless bishop, will show you a way of being church that is exhilarating, tender, compassionate, and, best of all, possible.” —Michael Leach, author, Why Stay Catholic?
“If you enjoyed the bestselling Joshua stories, you are going to love Joseph Girzone’s new hero Carlo in The Homeless Bishop!” —Phyllis Tickle, author, The Great Emergence
“A wonderful novel! I strongly recommend it to anyone seeking inspirational fiction with a strong social message.”—Lisa Hendey, catholicmom.com
