Product Description

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.

Editorial Reviews

“In Let God’s Light Shine Forth, Robert Moynihan has made an intelligent selection from [Pope Benedict XVI’s works] . . . the extracts themselves provide a useful window into the characteristic preoccupations of a thinker now uniquely positioned to translate thought into policies that will affect the lives of hundreds of millions.” —The Washington Post
 
Let God’s Light Shine Forth is a lovely book that serves two purposes. It is a fine introduction to the pope’s personal and professional life. And the selection of beautifully written (yet relatively short) excerpts from his writings can be fruitfully used for personal meditation and reflection.” —St. Louis Review
