Covenant and Communion: by Scott Hahn
Author: Scott Hahn
|Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology of Pope Benedict XVI|
Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger's election as Pope Benedict XVI brought a world-class biblical theologian to the papacy. There is an intensely biblical quality to his pastoral teaching and he has demonstrated a keen concern for the authentic interpretation of sacred Scripture.
Here Scott Hahn, a foremost interpreter of Catholic thought and life, offers a probing look at Benedict's biblical theology and provides a clear and concise introduction to his life and work. Hahn argues that the heart of Benedict's theology is salvation history and the Bible and shows how Benedict accepts historical criticism but recognizes its limits. The author also explains how Benedict reads the overall narrative of Scripture and how he puts it to work in theology, liturgy, and Christian discipleship.
