ON HEAVEN and EARTH by Jorges Mario Bergoglio & Abraham Skora


Pope Frances, it seems, is like none before him and both the print and broadcast media appear captivated by his unique and highly personal approach to problem solving. But so much of the media’s coverage tends to consist of pithy sound bites, leaving us with the feeling that we really don’t know the man behind the image.
Enter On Heaven and Earth. This books details a long-running and free-wheeling discussion on between Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, who became Pope Frances, and Rabbi Abraham Skorka. Through 29 chapters these two religious leaders off their views and insights on a variety of topics ranging from God, the Devil, and Religion to widely debated issues such as Abortion, Euthanasia, and Same-Sex Marriage.
It’s tantalizing to imagine participating in such an frank and probing discussion with the Pope. Unfortunately, that is impossible. Through Heaven and Earth we get the next best thing. Be the proverbial fly on the wall and listen-in as the current Pope opens his mind and heart on multiple issues.
Highly recommended!
