I received this book as part of the Goodreads First Reads giveaways, in exchange for an honest review.

I am so personally impressed with Pope Francis that I was thrilled to win this giveaway. I only wish time had allowed me to read it sooner.

My only wish for this book is that the excerpts were pulled more from his homilies to the common folk, & less from his addresses to other priests, bishops, & other religious leaders. While, as a Catholic, it is interesting to hear him speak of loftier ideas, it can lose the reader quickly. Some of this would have been fine; but it's my opinion that there is too much of it.

Make no mistake: while Pope Francis is calling for what seems like a less-stringent, less-dogmatic way forward for the Catholic Church, nothing about it is easy. He is challenging in every one of these excerpts: challenging both the clergy & the congregation to be better, to be more Christian, to be more responsible for themselves & to each other, to have faith & trust in God. There is nothing easy about what he's asking of us all. But it's also nothing new. It's what we're called to do & be by Jesus, the Apostles, & other early Christian leaders. It's clear that Pope Francis's moves to move past issues like divorced Catholics, gay Catholics, & other wedge issues that have politicized the Church are his way of saying, "Don't sweat the small stuff." There are bigger things at play: people freezing & starving to death right outside the Vatican walls, for instance. He calls on us to work to end injustices like this, & he's not kidding, or taking it lightly. This is a man who knows his theology, knows his role, & knows he has limited time to make an impact. I hope he's able to make the changes necessary in the time he has with us. ( )

A vision for the church. Jesus understands human sufferings. He has shown the face of God's mercy, and has bent down to heal body and soul. This is Jesus. This is His heart. ( )

I enjoyed reading a bit of the Pope's theology. This short book (150 pp approximately) is a compilation of various homilies he has made to a wide variety of both priestly, religious, and lay venues. More than a Liberation Theologist, as should be expected, the Pope preaches the mercy of Christ, the love of Mary, and an encompassing church.

I am not sure if the College of Cardinals knew what it was doing, or not, but I think the entire world has been blessed with this man. ( )

A very short book, this is actually previous sermons given by the Pope. There is a bit more distance in the Catholic theology Pope Francis expresses, and the Methodist theology of my understanding, which is simply to say the book deserves a slower and more attentive reading than I'm capable giving at this time. That being said, the promise the world has seen in his ministry as pope is certainly present in these earlier sermons. These expressions are those of learned theologian, and though more complex, represents the same humble and simple message of Christ we have seen preached in the actions of Pope Francis, fisher of men.
