Anyone who is truly interested in the truth, "Light of the World" is a must read. The book deals with the present situation of the world and it is a staight forward, down to earth response, by this intellectual Pope, to questions posed by Journalist Peter Seewald. I highly recommend as the content is something that all people need to ponder.

An excellent and heartening MUST READ for all modern Catholics. Indeed, Christians of all denominations will be impressed by this very accessible question and answer format. Peter Seewald does not pull any punches in his questioning, nor does Pope Benedict XVI waffle on any of his responses. Any who wondered about Joseph Ratzinger's ability to fill some very large shoes or doubted that he is indeed the man for the hour, will be completely reassured and encouraged by his wisdom, knowledge, and intellect; and buoyed up, in the very dark times in which we find ourselves, by his personal warmth and resounding faith in the Grace of God and the Love of Jesus Christ. Masterfully written for a general audience: mature teens to adults.

This is an amazing book. It's as though you were having a conversation with Pope Benedict,with him answering all the questions you ever wanted to ask. It is so easy to read,and so honest. I feel as though I got to know him personally while reading it. Every catholic should have one.

This interview with Pope Benedict XVI, while still rigorously theological and steeped with biblical and contemporary social knowledge, remains accessible to everyday readers. With a global and historic perspective, the Pope takes a pastoral approach touching upon the complex issues that face the modern world. It is an awesome read!
