“Dialogue is born from an attitude of respect for the other person, from a conviction that the other person has something good to say. In order to dialogue it is necessary to know how to lower the defenses, open the doors of your house, and offer human warmth.”’
As Archbishop of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio was known for his respect for other faiths and has encouraged all parties to engage in dialogue to learn from one another. The book is the back-and-forth with Rabbi Skorka, a trained biophysicist, and the future Pope.
