Author: Pope Francis. Review by Howard W Hilton
New Year encourages us to speculate on our future. In this book, Francis surveys the crises around us: the pandemic, the climate, and also the longstanding problems of inequality, of war and its casualties (think Yemen). Francis sees these in biblical terms, as a ‘sifting’, a time when our usual modes of thinking are given a good shaking, perhaps prior to rearrangement. It is a book for the comfort and discomfort of us all.
