This small book, about the size of a larger coat pocket, is packed with information on the opinions of the new Pope on a whole variety of topics. If you want to catch up on the opinions of this, the new leader of the Roman Catholic, this is probably one of the best places to begin and easiest place to get a pretty comprehensive overview.

There are seven or eight pages of contents, although some of the headings have just a single quotation/citation or two each, at the back of the book there is a four page timeline from birth to election as pope, the rest of the book is a very detailed list of citations providing publication and website references for every single quotation. There is no index but in the case of this book the contents is equivocal to an index, each topic or word is precisely referenced, for instance "on cities", "on citizenship", "on the conclave", "on conversation".

This publication is similar to, and as good as, publications of its kind produced by or with a focus upon the opinions of other public leaders/spokespeople or spokespersons for world religions. It is a publication which obviously will be of interest to members of the faith community of which Pope Francis is now the leader but it could interest anyone who collects quotations of public figures or a generally interested reader who may wish to find out his opinions on ethics (the Pope's view of law, morals, mercy and injustice for instance) and spiritual matters (Homolies, the virgin mary, Jesus and religious life for instance).

Reading his speeches, and his wonderful one liners, revealed a man at peace with himself and with God. So a great servant of the Lord, who is being used in a wonderful way as Pope.

A book to be read by all who wish to understand dear Pope Francis.

The world and the church is richer for his witness

His words touch the hearts on account of the simple loving manner they are given, and for the fact that they manifest a very deep, personal encounter and love of Jesus, the Father and the Spirit.

The book is necessarily limited to what has been said to date.

My uncle is a priest and it is always difficult to buy gifts for him. He loves this. As a big fan of pope Francis he was delighted with the simple but interesting quotes in the book.
