Pilgrim Fellowship of Faith: The Church as Communionby Pope Benedict XVI, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger
Pub. Date: 04/28/2005
Publisher: Ignatius Press
On the occasion of the Cardinal's 75th
During the papacy of John Paul II, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became perhaps the most visible member of the Catholic clergy in the world, second only to the pope himself. In addition, his status as the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith made him one of the most controversial churchmen in recent history.
On the occasion of the Cardinal's 75th birthday, his former students selected essays, lectures, letters, and conferences that they feel best represented the position of the cardinal on issues of theology, the modern world, secularism, non-Christian religions, and other key topics of the Catholic Church. This book, characterized by Ratzinger's concisely reasoned style, is an invaluable resource to those who wish to understand the modern Church, as well as a treasured volume for those who are students of Ratzinger's theology. It also offers a valuable glimpse into the intellect of the man who became Pope Benedict XVI on April 19, 2005.
