This week’s giveaway:


On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family, and the Church in the 21st Century

By Jorge Mario Bergoglio (Pope Francis) and Abraham Skorka  (Image Books, 2013)

I shared 7 reasons why I’ll be reading this book NEXT (which is sort of a relative term, given my piles and commitments…), but here’s more about the book too:

From the man who became Pope Francis, Jorge Mario Bergoglio shares his thoughts on religion, reason, and the challenges the world faces in the 21st century with Abraham Skorka, a rabbi and biophysicist.

For years Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Argentina, and Rabbi Abraham Skorka were tenacious promoters of interreligious dialogues on faith and reason. They both sought to build bridges among Catholicism, Judaism, and the world at large. On Heaven and Earth, originally published in Argentina in 2010, brings together a series of these conversations where both men talked about various theological and worldly issues, including God, fundamentalism, atheism, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, same-sex marriage, and globalization. From these personal and accessible talks comes a first-hand view of the man who would become pope to 1.2 billion Catholics around the world in March 2013.

I have *5* copies to give away! 🙂


Accepting entries until 7 AM Eastern one week from today.
