What Is Christianity? The Last Writings

The last writings of Pope Benedict XVI, new from Ignatius Press and perfect for those who love this theological master!  When the pope stepped down and became Pope Emeritus, he never stopped thinking (or writing).  He requested that this collection of writings be published upon his death and, in typical Benedict style, is written with poise and theological rigor.
