This review is from: Light of the World: The Pope, the Church, and the Signs of the Times. An interview with Peter Seewald. (Hardcover)
As a staunch Vatican II Catholic I had been concerned that Pope Benedict was trying to turn the clock back - this interview shows that, on the contrary, he is even more of a reformer than his predecessor and that he has been very seriously mis-represented by both traditionalist and liberal Catholics and by the secular forces undermining Christian teaching. In this book, and in his own words, he shows tremendous wisdom and understanding of the real world, whilst nevertheless promoting timeless Gospel values. He also demonstrates a degree of humility which other, more vociferous, leaders and would-be opinion makers would do well to imitate.
