Article number: P-1248
Availability: In stock (1)
Never has a Pope in a book-length interview dealt so directly with such wide-ranging and controversial issues as Pope Benedict XVI does in Light of the World. Taken from a week-long series of interviewswith veteran journalist Peter Seewald, this book tackles head-on some of the greatest issues facing the world of our time. Seewald poses such forthright questions to Pope Benedict as: What caused the clergy sexual abuse in the Catholic Church? Was there a cover up? Have you ever considered resigning? Should the church rethink Catholic teaching on priestly celibacy, women priests, contraception, and same-sex relationships? How can the Pope claim to be infallable? Believers and unbelievers will be fascinated to hear Benedicts reply. This is no stern preachment or ponderous theological tract, but a lively, fast-paced, challenging, and even entertaining exchange.(If you are trying to purchase this item and it shows as "out of stock," please call the store during business hours (512-382-1728) to double check--we are constantly re-stocking items and it simply may not have updated to the web.
