After Reading John Allen's 10 Things Pope Francis Wants You to Know, I went back for another serviing of his writings - the mirror book on Pope Benedict. Both books are excellent summaries of the pontificates. This one was written early in the pontificate of Pope Benedict, and highlighted what were his focus points. A good retrospective now that Benedict XVI is Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. Reads quick, lots to highlight. I will likely re-read both of these books over time, to keep the succinct ideas fresh in my memory.

The basis for his conjectures comes not from Allen's own personal perspectives, but from the writings and speeches of the Holy Father.

After reading "10 Things," you will know your new Pope and feel your faith renewed. The story of Pope Francis and the 10 things he wants us to know goes beyond the simplistic title. It's a brief read, the content is concise. What I learned from this book about Pope Francis: 1) If Pope John Paul's signature line is "Be not afraid!" and Pope Benedict XVI's was "reason and faith," Pope Francis' is "God never gets tired of forgiving u. The good pope explained that it is us, the people, who oftentimes get tired of asking for forgiveness. It takes us from the first day of his taking office to a man who works have already had an impact.

I purchased this item because I was curious to know the 10 things and because I have heard John Allen on television. I am happy with this small book. I am pleased for three reasons.

First John Allen writes well. He is easy to read and his writing holds my interest. Second, his summaries of Benedict's teaching seem to be accurate and clear. For example, his treatment of Benedict's teaching in God is Love is concise and true to that wonderful encyclical. God Is Love: Deus Caritas Est Third, the ten ideas that Allen presents are worth knowing.

The ten things Allen explains are:
1. God is Love
2. Jesus is Lord
3. Truth and Freedom are two sides of the same coin.
4. Faith and Reason need one another.
5. The Eucharist is the Heart of the Christian life.
6. Christianity is a positive message.
7. The Church forms consciences but stays out of politics.
8. The importance of Catholic identity.
9. Christ and the Church are Inseparable.
10. The Virtue of Patience.

Some of the explanations may surprise you. For example, in number seven, It is clear that, although Benedict wants the Church out of "politics," he pushes for progress. He calls for Rich nations to cancel the debt of poor states so the poor countries might grow their economy and care for their people.

I recommend this book. Although small in size, it contains much treasure.

Bought several to give to friends and family members who have been away from the practice of the faith. Great to tuck in a gift as well.

This is a short book with "pearls' scattered throughout the pages.
The Pope wants Catholics to learn and return to the basics of Catholicism.
The author John Allen uses the Pope's original writings and gives us 10 things the Pope wants us to know starting from God is Love to Christianity is about Patience. It is well written, precise and needs to be re-read to get the pearls and the message that moral relativism is deadly to the truth of Christ. John Allen does an excellent job of representing Pope Benedict's principles and well worth the time.

John L Allen is a very liberal reporter for the National Catholic Reporter
The book twists the Pope's words to reflect the liberal view of Allen and the National Catholic Reporter.
To know what Pope Benedict wants you to know; buy the books written by the Pope. He has two great ones out now about Jesus. Reading the first book on Jesus by the Pope is what brought me to the Catholic Church. I also enjoyed "Basic Christianity" by the Pope. It is out of print but can be bought on Amazon used. It is not simple but is very rewarding and actually thrilling to read for a Christian.
