John Allen is one of the world's most respected religion journalists. In A People of Hope he presents interviews with Cardinal Timothy Dolan one of the country's most important Catholic leaders in decades. The book gives information about Cardinal Dolan the man and then presents interviews in two sections under the headings "Challenges Facing the Church" and "Catholic Faith and Life". Topics discussed in A People of Hope include the sexual-abuse crisis, women in the church, faith and politics, affirmative orthodoxy and prayer and the sacraments among others. Allen finds that Cardinal Dolan tries to turn negative questions into positive ones and talk about the topic from a positive and hopeful point of view. Information presented in the interviews is something the average person might not learn through the media so the positive and hopeful views presented are encouraging and uplifting while recognizing that there are problem areas. Allen allows Cardinal Dolan to expand on issues so Allen feels the book is "more with Dolan than about Dolan". In A People of Hope you not only get an interesting viewpoint of the Catholic Church but a glimpse of the heart and soul of Cardinal Dolan.
