Product Description

After stepping down as Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI in 2013, he never ceased thinking or writing. Near the end of his life, he and editor Elio Guerriero compiled a large volume of new work on topics dear to his heart. The pope requested that it be made public after his death.

What Is Christianity? is the title of the final piece. It covers a wide range of topics, including the Christian faith's relationship with other religions, particularly Judaism and Islam; theology and liturgical reform; the priesthood; the saints; the Eucharist; the travesty of abuse; the beauty of nature; Italian and German culture; and much more.

Benedict warns of a "radical manipulation of man" in the name of tolerance, maintaining that the only "authentic counterweight to every form of intolerance" is Christ himself—and Christ crucified.

The late Pope Benedict XVI, a lifelong Catholic, pays tribute to three of the major icons of Christianity who have served as guiding beacons to him over the years: his predecessor Pope John Paul II, the twentieth-century German Jesuit martyr Alfred Delp, and his patron saint, the silent carpenter Joseph.

What Is Christianity? is an honest spiritual witness from a theological expert, a churchman who respected the faith of simple Christians but who, even in his final days, was always ready to dialogue about every facet of human life—in love and truth.
