A Future of Faith – The Path of Change in Pol­i­tics and Society

Pope Fran­cis – with Dominique Wolton

Many thanks to Brother Ed Car­mody for intro­duc­ing me to (and lend­ing me) this book. This is a ques­tion and answer for­mat book with an author and the Pope. The author, Dominique Wolton, was selected by the Pope, he is a proud French­man, a true believer in the Euro­pean Union, the French Rev­o­lu­tion and has deep con­cerns over the way glob­al­iza­tion and com­mu­ni­ca­tion tech­nolo­gies are shap­ing the world. The book is very Euro-​centric, and hardly men­tions the US at all.
