The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful
A History in Three Dimensions
Joseph Pearce

No one has seen this three-dimensional pattern in the tapestry of history more clearly than Benedict XVI. In words of beauty and brilliance, Pope Benedict speaks of the goodness of the saints and the beauty of art as the only antidote to the dark thread of evil which runs through the whole of human history. All three threads are interwoven in the history of man because they are all interwoven in the heart of man. Inspired by this understanding of history by Pope Benedict, Joseph Pearce presents the history of the past two millennia in the light of this three-dimensional pattern of the good, the bad and the beautiful.

He Gave Us So Much
A Tribute to Benedict XVI

Cardinal Robert Sarah

“…you will find in this book a general idea of the soul of Joseph Ratzinger. I tried to recall the times when, furtively, he opened up the secret recesses of his heart. These moments outline an original path to God. They compose the portrait of a saint. They invite us to follow him. To this I added various texts that I had published over the years.In them you may discover an unexpected, unknown Benedict XVI. In them you perceive the coherence of the immense treasure that he left to us. “ Cardinal Robert Sarah

What is Christianity?
The Last Writings
Pope Benedict XVI

Near the end of his life Pope Benedict XVI and editor Elio Guerriero gathered together a whole volume of new material, dealing with the themes closest to his heart. The pope asked that it be published upon his death. This final work takes up a kaleidoscopic array of themes: the Christian faith’s relationship with other religions, especially Judaism and Islam; the theology and reform of the liturgy; the priesthood; the saints; the Eucharist; the travesty of abuse; the beauty of nature; Italian and German culture; and much more.
