Few persons of the theological stature of Joseph Ratzinger - and with such a developed corpus of theological works - have been elected Pope. There is no question that his pontificate will be extremely influential for the Roman Catholic Church and the world. But the question is In what ways?
This volume, published on the fourth anniversary of Benedict's election as Pope, offers considered insights into that key question. William Rusch has pulled together an ecumenical gathering of viewpoints - Episcopalian, Lutheran, Methodist, Orthodox, Pentecostal, Reformed, and Roman Catholic. Coming from this spectrum of Christian traditions, the authors examine how the life experiences and theological reflections of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger will likely influence the pontificate of Benedict XVI. Paperback.
William G. Rusch has been executive director of the Foundation for a Conference on Faith and Order in North America, director of the NCC Commission on Faith and Order, and director of other ecumenical organizations. The author or editor of several books, including Ecumenism: A Movement toward Church Unity, he now teaches at Yale Divinity School, Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia, and New York Theological Seminary.
