Since the appearance of Pope Francis on the world scene, a steady flow of books has appeared, each of them helping us better understand this exceptional man. In this book,the reader gets to the heart of the man. And that heart can be described in one word—encounter. The author, who writes from a very personal relationship with Francis, shows how the imperative—”You must go out of yourself”—has been the preaching and the practice of Francis’s entire life. This is a book whose impact exceeds its size—seven chapters—but each of them reveals some further aspect of the message needed for our times. I have used it several times as inspiration for homilies and teaching. The study guide for each chapter could be a useful tool for those involved in leading prayer and study groups.
