Benedict XVI: Essays and Reflections on His Papacy
Sheed & Ward, 2010. 224 pages, $29.95 hardcover
A who’s who of notable figures contributes to this beautifully illustrated work that celebrates the first five years of Pope Benedict’s pontificate. The official Vatican photos, including candid shots, capture the Holy Father’s human and pastoral side. Leaders from Jordan’s King Abdullah and President Shimon Peres of Israel to Cardinal Francis George offer personal anecdotes, experiences, and reflections on Benedict’s papacy. The book includes chronologies from his early life and ministry as Joseph Ratzinger as well as his time as Pontiff.
