Book Recommendation: A People of Hope…

We offer our congratulations to Archbishop Dolan of New York who will become a Cardinal of the Church on next February 18th. Archbishop Dolan is one of the fastest-rising members of the clergy anywhere in the world.

John Allen is a highly-respected religion journalist. His latest book, A People of Hope: Archbishop Timothy Dolan in Conversation with John L. Allen Jr., was published on November 1, 2011.

This is a timely and fascinating book. Learn more at Amazon.
