Benedict XVI's writing as priest-professor, bishop, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and now pope has shaped Catholic theological thought in the twentieth century. In Explorations in the Theology of Benedict XVI, a multidisciplinary group of scholars treat the full scope of Benedict's theological oeuvre, including the Augustinian context of his thought; his ecclesiology; his theologically grounded approach to biblical exegesis and Christology; his unfolding of a theology of history and culture; his liturgical and sacramental theology; his theological analysis of political and economic developments; his use of the natural law in ethics and conscience; his commitment to a form of interreligious dialogue from a place of particularity; and his function as a public, catechetical theologian.
John C. Cavadini is professor of theology and McGrath-Cavadini Director of the Institute for Church Life at the University of Notre Dame. He is editor and co-editor of a number of books, including Who Do You Say That I Am? Confessing the Mystery of Christ

Editorial Reviews

“Certainly achieving its goal to appreciate and ‘to honor [Benedict XVI], as theologian,’ the essays contained therein provide much fodder for theological background and discussion around key themes of Benedict XVI’s writings as pope, especially his encyclicals, and on his writing prior to his election as he engaged currents of cultural thought more directly.”
