I'm not Catholic. Nor am I someone who frequents church or associates with a certain denomination of religious affiliations. Requesting this book was a little odd for me. However I am adamantly curious and I figured how many times in a lifetime does one get to read a book written by the current reigning Pope. I would have to imagine not that often.
The book has a gorgeous, yet simple cover featuring Pope Francis delivering one of his morning Homilies from St. Martha's Chapel. The simplicity and elegance of the cover echoes the simplicity and elegance of the entire book.
My favorite aspect of this book was the organization of the book. As an avid reader of self help types of books I think these books tend to get overwhelming. They should only be read in small doses so a person can have time to reflect upon what they have read. The book is divided into 186 chapters. Each chapter is a page or two long. I like that the book is set up so that the reader can find the topic that they need help or guidance with at that particular moment and focus in on the chapter or two that relate to that need. Also each section is extremely easy to read while at the same time packing a lot of punch in the words.
Overall I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick. daily dose of inspiration.
I received a copy of this book for free from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
