Product description

Review

Matthew Levering
"University of Dayton"
"Benedict XVI is a pope of theological ressourcement in the sense that he aims to place the Scriptures and the patristic heritage at the center of the Church's life. Reading these portraits of Church Fathers, one is struck by how their minds and hearts were aflame with love for Christ Jesus as revealed in Scripture. To love God and neighbor in Christ and his Spirit this is the quest to which these extraordinary people dedicated their lives. Through Benedict's highly readable teachings, skillfully edited by Joseph Lienhard, the Fathers come alive; Christ Jesus lives in them and calls to us.""
