    This is a profoundly inspirational read. In the early days,Christians were observed "See how they love one another" This Church of Pope Francis extends that love to every one..whether religious,atheist,agnostic.It makes one feel good again about being Catholic,too. Divorced or not.
    Highly recommended read for everyone.

    Reading this book is a pure joy!  Because of the form that it's

    Reading this book is a pure joy!  Because of the form that it's written in, it's like being in the same room with then Cardinal Bergoglio and  Rabbi Skorka and listening to some amazing conversations.  Like a fly on the wall, only better!  It's really interesting to get so much information on both the Catholic and Jewish perspective of things.  I feel like I've learned so much by reading this book BUT it's not one of those books that you almost feel required to read to obtain knowledge it just happens naturally as you listen in to two very intelligent people having a conversation.




    I learned some really interesting things - like some theories on why God didn't like the tower of Babel.




    I love this line by Pope Francis on the devil "Maybe his greatest achievement in these times is has been to make us believe that he doesn't exist and that all can be fixed on a purely human level.




    Here is another one on death, "In my case, for example, I think that every day I'm going to die.  This does not distress me, because the Lord and life itself have given me the proper preparation."




    Here is the list of topics they discuss:
    God
    The Devil
    Atheists
    Religions
    Religious Leaders
    the Disciples
    Prayer
    Guilt
    Fundamentalism
    Death
    Euthanasia
    Elderly
    Women
    Abortion
    Divorce
    Same Sex Marriage
    Science
    Education
    Politics and power
    Communism and Capitalism
    Globalization
    Money
    Poverty
    Holocaust
    1970s
    The Conquest, Socialism, and Peronism
    Arab Israeli Conflict
    Interreligious Dialogue
    Future of Religion




    This book is less than 200 pages.  It is an easy read and it's filled with interesting topics.  I recommend this book for anyone that like religious studies, Judaism, Catholicism, or Argentina.




    I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.

    Highly recomended

    I am reading this book one chapter a day, so I can savor the spirituality. Pope Francis shows his closeness to our Lord and recognition of humanity.
