The Joy of the Gospel

Normally - I'm writing about technical aspects of my job or new technology, but this time I'm taking a step back because I am testing out my skills in reviewing a book. I've chosen to review "The Joy of the Gospel" by our wonderful Pope Francis.

Here is a brief summary of the book. I am looking forward to receiving it in the mail to review.

This special edition of Pope Francis's popular message of hope explores themes that are important for believers in the 21st century. Examining the many obstacles to faith and what can be done to overcome those hurdles, he emphasizes the importance of service to God and all his creation. Advocating for “the homeless, the addicted, refugees, indigenous peoples, the elderly who are increasingly isolated and abandoned,” the Holy Father shows us how to respond to poverty and current economic challenges that affect us locally and globally. Ultimately, Pope Francis demonstrates how to develop a more personal relationship with Jesus Christ, “to recognize the traces of God’s Spirit in events great and small.”
