Pope Benedict carefully and lovingly presents Paul as very much a pillar of Christ's Church, but not its founder

Pope Benedict carefully and lovingly presents Paul as very much a pillar of Christ's Church, but not its founder. Pope Benedict also explains Paul's message of justification by faith, pointing out the places of agreement with Protestants, but also very gently distinguishing the place of charity (manifested in works) as the ultimate fruit of faith. Faith without works is indeed a dead faith

But attention shifted quickly to the succession, and the election of the new Pope, Francis. Amid the drama, one question was never fully answered - why did Benedict quit? Pope Benedict's official resignation statement offered his waning physical and mental powers as the explanation, but it's long been suspected there was more to it. And my inquiries have confirmed that. I went to visit the Nigerian Cardinal, Francis Arinze at his apartment overlooking St Peter's

Saint Paul is one of the most important figures in Christian history. Paul's encounter with the resurrected Jesus on the road to Damascus changed his life, the Church, and the world.

St. Paul is one of the most important figures in Christian history. As Saul of Tarsus he vigorously persecuted Christianity, even collaborating in the death of Christianity s first martyr, Stephen. His encounter with the resurrected Jesus on the road to Damascus changed Paul s life, the Christian Church, and world history. More than anyone else in the early Church, Paul saw the universal nature of the Christian message. He became the Apostle to the Gentiles and the Teacher of the Nations . As the human author of half of the New Testament, Paul is a figure who cannot be overlooked by anyone who wants to understand Jesus Christ and Christianity.

In this book, Pope Benedict XVI, a profound spiritual leader in his own right and a first-rate theologian and Bible commentator, explores the legacy of Paul. Pope Benedict follows the course of the Apostle s life, including his missionary journeys and his relationship with the other apostles of Jesus such as St. Peter and St. James, and Paul s martyrdom in Rome. Benedict also examines such questions as: Did Paul know Jesus during his earthly life and how much of Jesus teaching and ministry did he know of? Did Paul distort the teachings of Jesus? What role did Jesus death and resurrection play in Paul s teaching? What are we to make of Paul s teaching about the end of the world? What does Paul s teaching say about the differences between Catholic and Protestant Christians over salvation and the roles of faith and works in the Christian life? How have modern Catholic and Protestant scholars come together in their understanding of Paul? What does Paul have to teach us today about living a spiritual life?

These and other important issues are addressed in this masterful, inspirational, and highly-readable presentation of St. Paul and his writings by one of today s great spiritual teachers, Pope Benedict XVI.

The Apostle Paul, an outstanding and almost inimitable yet stimulating figure, stands before us as an example of total dedication to the Lord and to his Church, as well as of great openness to humanity and its cultures. Pope Benedict XVI

Slender volume on the post-Damascus life of the inimitable St. Paul.
Effectively an English-translation* collection of teachings from the General Audiences July 2008-Feb 2009 from the ever-erudite Pope (Emeritus) Benedict XVI. (*Translation by L'Osservatore Romano). The
With each chapter averaging approximately 12pp., one may comfortably read one or more in an evening, but the depth of the profound messages will require much longer to fully discern & assimilate.

As parish Adult Faith Formation Director, I'm using this book to enhance our current scripture study on the epistles of Paul.

The physical book itself is very lovely. It's appearance is rich and elegant.
A fine addition to any spiritual library.

NB: While I purchased this clothbound/hardcover book used, in "good" condition; I was very pleasantly surprised to receive what appeared to be one in " brand new" condition. The volume was also fully sealed in plastic and shipped in a study box.
I am very pleased with this transaction.

Thank you for reading,

I have never been a St. Paul fan. His" woman go home and do what your husband wants" speech was a real turn off, but I found out he didn't write it. It was written later by someone else. I like this book and I even like Paul. Pope Benedict does a lot to explain Paul and how he fits in. I found the book illuminating and realized that I have not been fair to Paul. Pope Benedict is a real academic and I found his work really thought-provoking. St. Paul is really worth the time.

The Pope continues the teaching he began in earlier audiences that have been turned into books, like The Fathers and The Apostles. This sketch of The Apostle is a loving, insightful meditation on Paul's conversion and teaching.

One of the left-handed compliments in vogue in the secular world is to label Paul as the "founder of the Church." Beware of people who propagate this myth; they'll use the bible as a reliable, historical source when they wish to document Paul's travels - and travel he did - he truly was the apostle to the Gentiles, and evangelized much of the Mediterranean.

Yet these same people suddenly adopt a skeptical approach to the bible when you try to point out that Paul actually met Christ on the road to Damascus, or the years he spent in learning the teaching of Christ from the twelve in Jerusalem. The goal of such people is to separate Christ from his Church, to say that the Church is a human creation and not the mystical body of the Son of God. Pope Benedict carefully and lovingly presents Paul as very much a pillar of Christ's Church, but not its founder.

Pope Benedict also explains Paul's message of justification by faith, pointing out the places of agreement with Protestants, but also very gently distinguishing the place of charity (manifested in works) as the ultimate fruit of faith. Faith without works is indeed a dead faith.

Some of the topics covered are the sacraments (especially Baptism, the Eucharist and Marriage), Paul's Christology, the Cross and the Resurrection (and why the two can't be separated and make up one Paschal mystery), and the Parousia.

This is excellent teaching for all believers; it is deep in meaning without being technical or difficult to understand.

Charming, easy read from the Pope who is the master-digester of theological and exegetical works for the lay person. I liked on p.. 24 when Bededict said that Paul's conversion was his death and Resurrection. He continually reaffirms that for St. Paul the Church was the faith family of God, not just some mere sociological association of individuals. Although being an eminently rational, erudite person, the Pope affirms on p. 107 that "love understands better than reason alone."

Provides excellent background on the Apostle Paul. I began reading this book while leading a Bible Study on the book of Acts. It gave additional information and understanding on the Apostle and his writings, adding to out study discussions. Very informative and somewhat theological, but still easy for a layman to follow and understand. Enjoyed reading it.

Once again Pope Benedict XVI does a masterful job of explaining new testament writings in a concise and understandable way. This is really a series of talks he gave at his general audience on Wednesdays in 2008/09 time frame. They are masterful in the weaving together teaching on and showing the historical roots of the letters of St Paul. I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting a deeper understanding of St Paul and his writings.

I enjoyed this book. However, if you are looking for a more in depth review of St. Paul and his life, I would look elsewhere. The former pope, as always in my opinion, provides an elegant theological overview of Paul's mission and message. While I found this interesting, I felt that a discussion of Paul himself was quite peripheral and almost served as a platform for former Pope Benedict to teach theology. In fact, each chapter was derived from his weekly addresses best I could discern.
I must admit I am partial to just about anything Pope Benedict writes, but this is very good. I have always had an aversion to St. Paul, probably because I could not understand his writings well, but this book is very clear and concise and helped me to have a much better appreciation for these irreplaceable writings of our New Testament. Pope Benedict as usual is deeply theological but at the same time easy to read for people at any stage of their journey towards Christ. Highly recommended.
