The Fathers of the Church

by ;
Format: Paperback
Pub. Date: 9/15/2009
Publisher(s): Eerdmans Pub Co


At This Wednesday Audiences during 2007 and 2008 Pope Benedict XVI gave a series talks on the Fathers of the Church. He devoted himself not only to such famous and influential Fathers as Augustine and John Chrysostom but also to figures not venerated as saints; one subject, Tertullian, even died outside the Catholic communion. This volume contains thirty-six of these inspirational teachings.

Author Biography

Pope Benedict XVI, born Joseph Alois Ratzinger, is the 265th and reigning Pope of the Roman Catholic Church. An outstanding theologian and teacher, he is also founding patron of the Ratzinger Foundation, a charitable organization that funds scholarships for poorer students around the world.
