I highly recommend reading this book. it is clear Pope Benedict XVI truly pored his heart out when writing this thoroughly detailed and well researched book.
Pope Benedict the XVI is the most brilliant theologian in the past 500 years. He did not disappoint with taking on the life of Christ. I enjoyed the audible version because it kept me moving along; you see, I tend to "chew" on the written version since there is so much depth and beauty to his writing. He really knows how to pack a lot into one simple phrase.
A book I will listen to a few times. nothing about it was extrodinary, which I think that is why it spoke to me. This was my first book by a Pope and I am looking for others.
Amazing depth of thought and insights, but told in a way that the average Christian can understand.
Very simply, if you're a Christian or thinking about becoming a Christian, you should get this book. I wasn't crazy about Don Leslie's narration, but the content of the book easily makes it worth listening.
It was one of the best religious books I have listened to.
Pope Benedict IVX
Sermon on the Mount
Yes, I would listen to this audiobook again! There are so many layers of vital spiritual truths to consider in this audiobook.
The articulate insights are so enthralling.
His voice is very nice, and he reads the book with appropriate inflection.
It brought me closer to Jesus.
Yes, spectacular book, just the technical stuff of the audiobook is bad. It was very difficult to find different chapters, which was so much worse because the chapters do really stand alone. Frustrating to stop listening and find a good place to pick up again.
FIX THE CHAPTER DIVISIONS PLEASE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
