Light of the World: The Pope, The Church and The Signs Of The Times by Peter Seewald and Pope Benedict XVI
This interview really gives an insight into the personality of Pope Benedict XVI and his views on a wide range of topics relevant to Catholics today. The interviewer asks intentionally provocative questions from both sides of the spectrum (from “conservative” to “liberal”) and almost tries to tease the Pope into making radical statements, to which Benedict replies with his extraordinary modesty and balanced approach to controversial questions.
I found the book interesting from cover to cover, and more than once was moved to stop and pray.
So, if you haven’t done so yet, get a copy of this book from your public library or from your favorite bookseller. I’m glad I did.
