Argentine publisher reissues book on Pope Francis

MEXICO CITY (AP) - The naming of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope Francis has inspired the enthusiasm not only of many Roman Catholics, but also of a publisher planning to re-launch a book about him by his official biographer, Sergio Rubin.

Maria Estomba is a spokeswoman for the Argentina-based publishing house Ediciones B.

Ediciones B now owns the Latin American publishing group Vergara, which in 2010 issued "The Jesuit. Conversations with Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio."

Estomba says Ediciones B will put out a new version Tuesday called "The Jesuit. The story of Francisco, The Argentine Pope."

She notes the Spanish-language book about Bergoglio's life and beliefs is based on two years of conversations Rubin and a fellow journalist held with then-Cardinal Bergoglio.

Estomba says there are future plans to translate the book into several languages.
