Worthen on Pope Francis and His Predecessors

At the American Prospect, Molly Worthen, whose wonderful book "Apostles of Reason," I reviewed a couple of weeks ago, has an article about Pope Francis and his predecessors. I think she understates the degree to which Pope Benedict XVI moved as forcefully as he thought he was able to confront the sex abuse crisis. But, by and large, Worthen is as thoughtful when considering our Church as she is when considering evangelicals and the article is worth a read.
