On Heaven and Earth is an open and expansive dialogue between Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Abraham Skorka, a Rabbi and biophysicist, in which they share their thoughts on religion, reason, and the challenges the world faces in the 21st Century. For years Cardinal Bergoglio (then Archbishop of Buenos Aires) and Rabbi Skorka were tenacious promoters of inter-religious dialogues on faith and reason. They both sought to build bridges between Catholicism, Judaism and the world at large. On Heaven and Earth brings together a series of these dialogues where both men talk about various theological and world issues including God, fundamentalism, atheism, abortion, homosexuality, euthanasia, same sex marriage and globalisation. From these personal and accessible dialogues comes a firsthand view of the man who is now Pope to 1.2 billion Catholics around the world.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born in Buenos Aires in 1936. He was elected Archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1998 and was created cardinal by Pope Jean Paul II in 2001 with the title of cardinal priest of San Roberto Bellarmino, a church served by Jesuits. He was elected the 266th Pope in March 2013.

Rabbi Abraham Skorka was born in Buenos Aires in 1950. He is Rector of the Latin American Rabbinical Seminary and has published numerous articles in the fields of Talmudic and Biblical research.
