A lifelong Roman Catholic, historian Garry Wills has been an ardent critic of the Catholic Church's history and teachings throughout his career. In his new book "The Future of the Catholic Church with Pope Francis," he focuses on how the current pontiff, who has spoken on controversial issues like sexual abuse, homosexuality, abortion and climate change, can serve as an agent of change for the Church.
