      Product Description:

      St.
      Paul is one of the most important figures in Christian history. As Saul
      of Tarsus he vigorously persecuted Christianity, even collaborating in
      the death of Christianity s first martyr, Stephen. His encounter with
      the resurrected Jesus on the road to Damascus changed Paul s life, the
      Christian Church, and world history. More than anyone else in the early
      Church, Paul saw the universal nature of the Christian message. He
      became the Apostle to the Gentiles and the Teacher of the Nations . As
      the human author of half of the New Testament, Paul is a figure who
      cannot be overlooked by anyone who wants to understand Jesus Christ and
      Christianity.

      In this book, Pope Benedict XVI, a profound
      spiritual leader in his own right and a first-rate theologian and Bible
      commentator, explores the legacy of Paul. Pope Benedict follows the
      course of the Apostle s life, including his missionary journeys and his
      relationship with the other apostles of Jesus such as St. Peter and St.
      James, and Paul s martyrdom in Rome. Benedict also examines such
      questions as: Did Paul know Jesus during his earthly life and how much
      of Jesus teaching and ministry did he know of? Did Paul distort the
      teachings of Jesus? What role did Jesus death and resurrection play in
      Paul s teaching? What are we to make of Paul s teaching about the end
      of the world? What does Paul s teaching say about the differences
      between Catholic and Protestant Christians over salvation and the roles
      of faith and works in the Christian life? How have modern Catholic and
      Protestant scholars come together in their understanding of Paul? What
      does Paul have to teach us today about living a spiritual life?

      These
      and other important issues are addressed in this masterful,
      inspirational, and highly-readable presentation of St. Paul and his
      writings by one of today s great spiritual teachers, Pope Benedict XVI.

      The
      Apostle Paul, an outstanding and almost inimitable yet stimulating
      figure, stands before us as an example of total dedication to the Lord
      and to his Church, as well as of great openness to humanity and its
      cultures.
