    One thought on “Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology of Pope Benedict XVI”

    1. Scott Hahn analyzes Pope Benedict’s biblical theology which includes material on the bible, the church and the cross. Underlying his theology is the question of death. This brings an urgency to his theology which Hahn captures. Benedict wants to draw us back to the bible. To interpret it as the early Fathers did and not wholly with the contemporary historical- critical method. Hahn suggests that Benedict feels that method takes away from the cosmic nature of faith, the church, Jesus words and [...]

    2. Scott Hahn provides a very good synthesis of the work of Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) in approaching the use of Scripture, and the accompanying critique of the historico-critical method of biblical study and exegesis. In doing so, Hahn doesn't attempt to use anything other than the words of Benedict himself, and thus it would now be possible to read any of the constitutive work of the Opus Magnus of Benedict/Ratzinger in a completely different light - as part of a concerted whole rather than [...]

    3. Absolutely incredible. I have hope again!Scott Hahn explains the heart of Pope Benedict and the purpose of his pontificate in terms of his theological undertakings. Useful read for protestants, nondenominational Christians, Messianic Jews, Catholics, Orthodox, everybody!He covers every topic of interest to me: from the Jewish roots of the Gospel mysteries to the de-Hellenization of society, the problematic results of using the historical-critical method, and so so much more.OH, that Catholics wo [...]

    4. This book is an important read for those who want to understand biblical theology; especially the biblical theology of our current Pope, Benedict XVI. This is not an easy read, it is very technical and academic. Mr. Hahn does a good job of summarizing the Pope's thoughts and lets the Pope speak in his own words as much as possible. Very important topics covered are the unity of the scriptures, the culmination of the scriptures in the sacrifice of the mass, and the authenticity and normative theo [...]

    5. Great summary of the Holy Father's biblical theology. It demonstrates how he goes back over the rich teachings of the Church from the ante-Nicene fathers to the Ressourcement to teach and preach the Gospel.
