For years Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires, and Rabbi Abraham Shorka 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, capitalism, and globalization. From these personal and accessible talks comes a firsthand view of the man who, March 2013, would become pope to 1.2 billion Catholics around the world.
