Jesus of Nazareth by Benedict( Book )

18 editions published between 2007 and 2010 in English and held by 2,013 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Pope, in his first book written as Benedict XVI, seeks to salvage the person of Jesus from recent "popular" depictions and to restore Jesus' true identity as discovered in the Gospels. Through his brilliance as a theologian and his personal conviction as a believer, the Pope shares a rich, compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and incites us to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure of the Christian faith
Light of the World : the Pope, the Church, and the signs of the times by Benedikt( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Popes do not usually grant book-length interviews to journalists. And never before has a pope given as in-depth and extensive interview as this one, answering so many direct questions on so many personal and controversial topics. ... As believers and non-believers alike read this book, many will be challenged to reconsider what they think they know about Pope Benedict XVI and the future of the Catholic Church."--Inside flap
The end of the world running club by Adrian J Walker( Book )

22 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How far will you go for the ones you love? Edgar Hill is 35 and caught in his own headlock. Overweight slob, under-performing husband and reluctant father - for Ed, the world may as well have already ended. So when it does end in a catastrophic asteroid strike, Edgar and his family find refuge in an Edinburgh army barracks. But nothing's ever that simple. Returning from a salvage run in the city, Edgar finds his family gone, taken to the south coast for evacuation by an international task force. Suddenly he finds himself facing a gruelling journey on foot across a devastated United Kingdom. Edgar must race against time and overcome his own short-comings, not to mention 100 mile canyons and a heavily flooded west coast, to find the people he loves before he loses them forever ... It is a vivid, gripping story of hope, long-distance running and how we break the limits of our own endurance
A life with Karol : my forty-year friendship with the man who became pope by Stanislaw Dziwisz( )

3 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz worked side-by-side with Pope John Paul II for almost forty years, enjoying unique access to both the public and private man. He provides a firsthand glimpse into the Pope's life and the critical events of his papacy. Dziwisz was sitting beside the Pope during the assassination attempt in 1981. He recounts the Pope's reaction to 9/11, describing the Pope's thoughts and feelings on that day. And his moving description of the Pope's haunting memories of World War II uncovers the roots of his intense opposition to Bush's war on Iraq. The two men shared moments of fun and irreverence as well. Dziwisz writes about the times the Pope would slip out of the Vatican wearing a Panama hat to stroll the streets of Rome, and describes the ski and hiking trips the two made. His account of the Pope's last years also reveals that John Paul II considered resigning. These stories and others lend added poignancy to Dziwisz's extraordinary portrayal of the Pope's courage and calmness during his final illness
The radiance of being : dimensions of cosmic Christianity by Stratford Caldecott( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 35 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Radiance of Being offers nothing less than a portrayal of the full glory of Catholic tradition. From an initial engagement with the insights of the natural sciences emerges a spiritual vision of the metaphysical depth and dimension of mystery to the cosmos, allowing the reader's mind to awaken to the coherence, beauty, intensity of life, and depth of structure of the natural world--the holiness of creation and all contained therein. Conversant with Islam, Buddhism, non-dualist traditions, as well as myriad mystical elements and esoteric currents within Christianity, the author builds a brilliant symphonic work whose master theme is the Trinity. To the urgent questions asked--in response to the crises besetting the modern world--about the nature of reality and the meaning of existence, of what it means to be human, Stratford Caldecott puts forward a clear and compelling answer in language accessible to all: Being is radiant because it is a gift, not only from the Trinity, but also within the Trinity itself; and, in the end, the meaning of existence is love
Theo-logic : theological logical theory by Hans Urs von Balthasar( )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Theo-Logic is the third and crowning part of the trilogy of the masterwork of theologian Hans Urs von Balthasar, following his first two parts, The Glory of the Lord and Theo-Drama. Theo-Logic is a variation of theology, it being about not so much what man says about God, but what God speaks about Himself. In this work, von Balthasar is ready to reflect on the truth that God reveals about Himself, which is not something abstract or theoretical, but rather the concrete and mysterious richness of God's being as a personal and loving God
Mary, the Church at the source by Benedictus( )

2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Two great theologians endeavor to restore the importance of Marian doctrine and devotion for the contemporary Church by offering a spiritually rich approach to Mariology. This effort brings into new relief the Marian contours of ecclesial faith. Ratzinger and von Balthasar show that Mary is both the embodiment of the Church, and the mother who co-operates in giving birth to the Church in the souls of believers."--Jacket
