Six months into his time as Pope, Pope Francis granted a unique and unusual interview answering questions from the editors of Society of Jesus journals. The questions were submitted by Antonio Spandaro, SJ who is the editor of the Italian journal. He organized the questions, presented them to the Vatican for the Pope to see and then conducted the interview. A Big Heart Open to God is a faithful translation of the interview which Spandaro called a conversation more than an interview. The book is divided into chapters which address questions dealing with topics such as "What does it mean for a Jesuit to be Bishop of Rome? The Roman Curia, Collegiality and Ecumenism Women in the Church Art and Creativity" and much more.

The conversation is followed by a section with reflections on the conversation by a diverse group of people including Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan, Richard Rohr OFM, and Karen Sue Smith. It concludes with a spiritual reflection by Fr. James Martin, SJ. A Big Heart Open to God lets you experience the humble, encouraging and caring words from Pope Francis that share his vision and love of the Church and the people under his care.
