is the riveting story of the first American-born pope, who sends shock waves throughout the Catholic Church when he summons a new gathering of the world's bishops. His mission: to bring long-needed changes to the life of the Church he loves.
Council is the passionate story of the men and women who are drawn into the maelstrom of faith and politics, passion and power: the pope who faces the most difficult crisis of his life...a powerful Irish cardinal who bitterly opposes the pope's call for a council...a South American businessman who once served in a death squad...an American priest who is torn from his troubled parish to play a role in the pope's dream...all are front-line soldiers in the battle of good against evil.
Council is an intimate look at the daily life and the crushing responsibilities of the papacy, as conflict and conspiracies whirl around the controversial figure of Celestine VI.
