Image Books, a “Catholic-interest” imprint of Random House Inc., announced recently that On Heaven and Earth: Pope Francis on Faith, Family and the Church in the 21st Century will be released on May 7. The book was co-written by Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
On Heaven and Earth includes discussions between the two religious leaders on everything from atheism and euthanasia to abortion and globalisation.
A Spanish-language edition was released in Latin America and Spain in 2010 by Random House Mondadori. Vintage Espanol, also a Random House imprint, will publish the Spanish edition in North America.
