Happiness in this Life out December
Pope Francis is no stranger to publishing, releasing his first book ‘The Name of God is Mercy’ in 2016. Now we hear from Pan Macmillan’s imprint Bluebird that they have acquired the rights to a new book by the pontiff full of his thoughts on Happiness.
The new release will be published in hardback on 5th December 2017 and will be called Happiness in this Life: A Passionate Meditation on Material Existence and is earmarked as an uplifting read and likely to be a Christmas bestseller.
The book will draw on Pope Francis’ own experiences as a priest to disuss the meaning of, and journey towards happiness, a subject of great importance in his teachings. Pope Francis has been a very outspoken pope on many issues, bringing attention to the refugee issues, and talking often of finding happiness in the modern world we live in.
Happiness books are big business at the moment, just last week we brought you news that the Little Book of Hygge is to get a follow up this year and as many of us strive to find some peace in this hectic world, this trend is only likely to continue.
Happiness in this Life by Pope Francis is available on pre-order now and will be released on 5th December of this year.
