Benedict speaks to representatives of Muslims in Germany of the common faith in one God that Christians and Muslims share. He acknowledges how some Muslim leaders have rejected terrorism. Yet he adds: "Those who instigate and plan these attacks evidently wish to poison out relations and destroy trust, making use of all means, including religion, to oppose every attempt to build a peaceful and serene life together."
God's Revolution also addresses Protestant Christians. Coming from the land of the Reformer Martin Luther, Benedict knows Protestant concerns. He presents Catholic teaching in a way that underscores Catholics and Protestants' common Christian commitment. "Together we confess that Jesus Christ is God and Lord," he states, "together we acknowledge him as the one mediator between God and man (cf. 1 Tim 2:5), and we emphasize together that we are members of his Body."
To the German Catholic leaders he urges renewed efforts to present Christ and Christianity to the modern world. While challenging them to respect people's search for the truth, the Pope call on them to be true to the Christian message: "We must teach patience, discernment, realism, but without false compromises, so as not to water down the Gospel!" He asks the bishops to find new ways to address young people, the future of the Catholic Church.

'Gods revolution' is a very inspirational collection of talks that pope benedict gave in germany during world youth day in or around his home town. these talks of his were designed to make a difference in the lifes of others.I felt of his most important lectures were given to the bishopsand the young people. the holy father said that it was important for them to find new and inspirational ways to reach out to the youth so they will want to find new ways to strengthen there faith and get involved in there church. one of the other many intresting speechs by pope benedict was for people of christ not too abuse faith using violence and or hatred it is important for great christians to commit them selfs to God in christ manner that can revolutionize the world for God.Was this review helpful?
