Let God's Light Shine Forth: The Spiritual Vision of Pope Benedict XVIby Pope Benedict XVI
Synopses & Reviews
Though he was a familiar Church leader for many years before becoming pope, there has been little awareness of the spiritual side of Benedict XVI. Now for the first time readers are given a brilliant overview of the Pope's most inspirational teachings in Let God's Light Shine Forth. Editor Robert Moynihan offers an understanding introduction to the life and work of Pope Benedict XVI and then presents an absorbing collection of his most persuasive words. Within these pages, Pope Benedict XVI introduces a God who is good, beautiful, and true, the fountain of all life. The most important thing for each person, in Benedict's view, is to discover and develop a loving relationship with God, because this is the way to the deepest and most lasting happiness that human beings can experience. Even in our darkest moments, he teaches, we can have hope that all things will ultimately work out in a wonderful way to show God's glory and bring blessedness to individual men and women.
Presents a collection of writings by Pope Benedict XVI along with an introduction to his life and work.
