These five superb homilies by the newly elected Pope, Benedict XVI, provide a clear and biblically based explanation of the first few chapters of the Bible. Reissued with a new cover and ISBN to celebrate Joseph Ratzinger's election. While the stories of the creation of the world and the fall of humankind have often given rise to conflict - fundamentalists twist them into science and history while rationalists approach them by 'divorcing God from creation' - the Pope presents the Catholic middle ground in explaining the vitality of these early Old Testament writings. Beginning each homily with the selected text from Genesis, the Pope discusses, in turn, God the creator, the meaning of the biblical creation accounts, the creation of human beings, sin and salvation, and the consequences of faith in creation. In the Beginning presents a compelling account of the value of creation for our times.

PRODUCT DETAIL

Benedict Xvi Pope

On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the "defender of the faith." Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new "Catechism of the Catholic Church," published in 1994.
