Pope Benedict turns his attention as a theologian and scripture scholar to one of the most important figures in the history of the Church. Reflecting on St Paul’s life and times, his indefatigable missionary activity and the most important events of his life, the Holy Father then goes on to explore the most important themes and theologies of St Paul’s writings including the incarnation, the cross, works, faith, and the sacraments.
The Holy Father, in proclaiming the Year of St Paul, wished to encourage the faithful to know better this important figure in the early Church. With this volume you can discover more fully Pope Benedict’s understanding of Paul’s importance, and develop your own understanding in harmony with that of the Church.
