Francis wrote preface to thriller before papacy

Bolzano, March 20 - Pope Francis wrote the preface to a thriller novel before he became pope. In 2009, the then archbishop of Buenos Aires, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, wrote the introduction to the historical novel Paul of Tarsus and the Letters of Fire (Paolo di Tarso e le lettere infuocate) by Italian author and professor Umberto Mondini. The proceeds of the book, which is set in first-century Jerusalem, went towards the construction of an elementary school in the impoverished Chaco region in Argentina.
