    ?Open yourself, decenter, and transcend.? The New York Times article, ?Pope Francis: A Crisis Reveals What Is in Our Hearts,? from November 26, 2020 is essentially a condensed version of this book. His overarching message is that the suffering COVID-19 has wrought can be us...

    A definite worthwhile read from Pope Francis on his thoughts during the Covid-19 quarantine about how the world is at the threshold of potential change. As usual, Pope Francis doesn't give out a bunch of feel good platitudes but implores us to think more globally about helping the...

    This book was well-written and really good. Pope Francis has a clear-eyed moral critique of modern inequality, markets, and politics. It's refreshing to hear from a Christian leader about the sins of the powerful and wealthy. It should not be that rare, but so many churches have b...

    Do we ever need to hear this book? Pope Francis speaks up for making positive changes for the good of all in our world. He offers a deep critique of the economic and political systems that are obsessed with profit and that ignore widespread human and planetary destruction. He reminds u...

    "Let Us Dream" is a book written by Austin Ivereigh with the cooperation of Pope Francis. Ivereigh gathered information from interviews with Pope Francis, his letters, his articles, etc. It is very current because it is dealing with Covid-19 and its effects. The book is di...

    The Pope's first reactions to a COVID-19 world that emphasize the possibility of a turning point. Moves easily between folksy old stories, internal church debates and astute analysis of the political climate. I found it worth it as a quick read. The Pope's first reactions to a ...

    My atheism has little to do with my two star rating. I can appreciate works of fiction for what they say about humanity ? I value a Murakami novel the same way I can value lessons from the Bible despite one being no more or less true than the other. I can also appreciate Pope Fran...

    The book is divided into three parts - a time to see, to choose, and to act. Bible stories are used as examples to help the reader understand along the way. The term Covid or virus is used as a symbol of the challenges of the world. I enjoyed the first section as it flowed beautifu...

    Pope Francis writes a clarion call for Catholics to apply their faith to the needs of society and "mother earth." I am an agnostic who cares about the needs of our world and our lives. The book is divided into three parts; a time to see, to choose, and to act. Throughout ...

    I am so glad to have been gifted this book. I am not Catholic, but I like this Pope and his ideas (which agree with mine, of course). This was written in response to 2020 and the pandemic. It is a hope for us to come out of this a better world, more caring, more conscious of one anothe...

    This was my first read of 2021, and I'm thankful this book fell into my hands so easily through my public library. In this short but effective book, Pope Francis accomplishes a few main things. First, he is able to clearly identify and name what he has seen come out of the COVID p...

    Pope Francis has a vision for a much better post-COVID future for the world. He addresses a multitude of topics in Let Us Dream: The Path to a Better Future. With compelling arguments, he presents the idea that our emergence from COVID should not lead us back to the way things were bef...

    In this book, Pope Francis reflects on lessons from this pandemic and imagines a better world afterward. In order to achieve that world though, hard steps must be taken to make the world more just and equal. These include addressing income inequality, welcoming migrants, defusing popul...

    -I believe that what has persuaded us is the myth of self-sufficiency, that whispering in our ears that the earth exists to be plundered; that others exist to meet our needs; that what we have earned or what we lack is what we deserve; that my reward is riches, even if that means that ...

    The perfect book to begin 2021. While reflecting on the pain and hurt of 2020, this book manages to find hope in the mess of the past year. Noting, the only way to move forward is to let yourself be affected by our worlds collective calamity, thus birthing true fraternity. The book...

    Sharing common goals for human development is at stake when false assumptions permeate around a 'trickle down theory.' "By making the integration of the poor and the care for our environment central to society's goals, we can generate work while humanizing our surr...

    I am constantly shocked by the heart of the pope. I am not Catholic, neither do I know much about the papacy, but his heart for those in need of mercy screams Christ to me. I can only fight to keep a conscious awareness of my neighbor in the way Pope Francis calls all people to. This b...

    Simply Amazing. That slightest inclination to "have it my way..." or the "let it be..." cultures are set as challenges if the world has to move to a new order of living as one people. The Pope makes us believe that such days are not far away to become real. He propo...

    I was born and raised Catholic and although I don?t always agree with everything the church does and says, I have loved Pope Francis since Day 1. This book was well written and covered a wide range of topics from the murder of George Floyd to the push for priests to get married. His ...

    I have few thoughts about this that I can concisely express. I think the Pontiff makes many excellent points that are worth noting and remembering every day and it certainly is evident that he cares about what he writes and has put significant thought into the subjects he mentions. ...

    I'm not much of a fan of Pope Francis, but when your spiritual director asks you to read something, you do it. I was pleasantly surprised at his thesis and his message, which avoided some of the things I most dislike about him as the pope. It was a quick read, and worth the time I...
