Overview

During the special Pauline Jubilee Year, Pope Benedict XVI used his Wednesday audiences as an opportunity to meet one of the most influential persons in the history of Christianity, Saint Paul the Apostle. Meeting Saint Paul with the Pope is the complete collection of these twenty papal reflections.

The pontiff's many years of teaching experience are evident in this insightful series in which he presents Saint Paul not merely as a historical figure from the past but as a person who continues to speak to us today. Each catechesis is a progression that begins with the world and historical time of Saint Paul, continues with his biography and dramatic conversion experience, considers Paul's relationship with the other apostles and early Christian communities, then offers a thoughtful examination of such major Pauline themes as the cross, Christology, the church, justification, the sacraments, and the second coming.

The accompanying study and reflection questions that conclude each of these twenty papal meetings provide helpful ways to appreciate Saint Paul's timeless message. This is an ideal resource for both individual reading and group study, with the unique benefit of having Pope Benedict as the teacher.
