In this book Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict XVI, explains with clarity and detail the nature of the Bible as the Word of God, and the important teaching of how the divine Word is also alive in the Church and present in Tradition. He also discusses the issue of Ecumenism and unity among Christians. Finally, he explains the crucial role of the Bishop as interpreter of the Word of God and custodian of Tradition in the Church.
The Pope is responding to the question of how the truth of the Christian faith can be recognized and articulated, how we can witness to it and hand it on to others. This is a frank, yet open exploration of the Catholic understanding of God's Word presented in a collection of classic essays by the brilliant teacher and writer who became Pope Benedict XVI.
