Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on His Papacyby Sister Mary Ann Walsh (Editor), King Abdullah II (Foreword by), Shimon Peres (Foreword by)
Benedict XVI is an extraordinary presentation of the first five years of Benedict's leadership as pope. The book provides an unprecedented look into the life and work of the Holy Father, with images that show him both in formal, public appearances and in intimate moments alone and with others. Elegantly designed and produced, the book features more than 100 brilliant full-color photos that illustrate the Pope's international travels and meetings with world leaders, as well as his contact with lay Catholics and moments of personal study or contemplation. Essays by the staff of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops explore key themes of Benedict's papacy, including his work on environmental issues and in the Middle East, and personal reflections from friends and church leaders reveal his profoundly human side. The book also features excerpts from Benedict's own writings and an essential resource section. Benedict XVI is an invaluable keepsake and resource for Catholics, spiritual seekers, and those interested in how Catholicism touches the world today.
