About the Author

Pope Benedict XVI is widely recognized as one of the most brilliant theologians and spiritual writers of our age. He has written many acclaimed spiritual and theological works that cover a broad range of important topics for modern man.

More About the Author

Born in 1927 in Germany as Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI has been head of the Roman Catholic Church since April 2005. A prolific author, theologian and university professor, Ratzinger served as an "expert" at the Second Vatican Council, and was tapped in 1977 by Pope Paul VI to lead the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. In 1981, Pope John Paul II called him to Rome to head the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he served until his papal election.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a great overview of the Church Fathers and Teachers. The book covers thirty-five Church Fathers and Teachers from Saint Leo the Great to Peter Lombard. On the list are many well know names but there are also many lesser know but very important people in the development and growth of the Church. Pope Benedict is able to show how these people established the theology of the Church. Pope Benedict starts each chapter by describing the world the individual lived in and then goes on to discuss the writings and beliefs of the individual and the impact the individual left on the world. All of Pope Benedict's books are easy to read and understand. You do not need a theological background to understand them. It is an amazing condensed book that gives an excellent summary of each of the Church Fathers and Teachers.

An interesting and valuable approach. Pope Benedict tells something about the person's life, brief points about their teaching or views, and usually an application to the Christian life today.

Format: Hardcover
A teacher and are two things that can not be done without. "Church Fathers and Teachers: From Saint Leo the Great to Peter Lombard" is a discussion from Pope Benedict XVI on the greatest Catholic leaders and teachers through the start of Catholicism's dominance in Europe, from the fifth through twelfth centuries and their lasting impact on the faith. "Church Fathers and Teachers" is a top pick for any theology collection, highly recommended.
