Product Description

Fr. Twoomey offers here a unique double-presentation of the man, Pope Benedict XVI--a "theological portrait" that encompasses both an overview of the writings, teachings and thought of the brilliant theologian and spiritual writer, as well as the man himself, his personality traits, and how he commmunicates with others. Twoomey shows that the Pope's style is really the opposite of the negative and inaccurate past depictions of Ratzinger. Benedict is indeed very pastoral and will first win the hearts of the people who can then read his writings for themselves. His first encyclical, God is Love, underscores that approach.
Twoomey also reveals that the secret to Benedict's serene dignified manner is his openness to beauty and truth. He lives for others and is not preoccupied with his own self. He is a man that Twoomey says "has the courage to be imperfect", showing he has a deep humility and that he strives for teaching the truth even when he is misunderstood. Here is a book that will help you get to know the new pope as if you had a personal introduction.
