First of two parts
His RNS bio notes that he has written two books on Catholic topics, including a biography of Pope Benedict XVI.
Gibson was honored recently as the Religion Newswriters Association's Religion Reporter of the Year for large newspapers and wire services. His winning entry included "The story behind Pope Francis' election," "Is 'Just War' doctrine another victim of the Syrian conflict?" and "The 'Breaking Bad' finale was great. But was it good?"
What I like about Gibson is that he seems to enjoy the give and take and not take it too personally.
Case in point: his willingness to do this interview.
