Hahn here renders an important service in so clearly setting forth the hermeneutical principles, biblical framework, and doctrinal positions of Pope Benedict XVI, arguably the world's most important contemporary theologian. The parallels between the biblical theology of the pope and of evangelicals, together with their respective attempts to interpret Scripture theologically in an age marked by modern biblical criticism, are particularly fascinating. -Kevin J. Vanhoozer, Wheaton College and Graduate School.

What could be more familiar than the Christmas story - and yet what could be more extraordinary? The cast of characters is strange and exotic: shepherds and magicians, an emperor and a despot, angels, and a baby who is Almighty God. The strangeness calls for an explanation, and this book provides it by examining the characters and the story in light of the biblical and historical context.

This brings an urgency to his theology which Hahn captures. This book is an important read for those who want to understand biblical theology; especially the biblical theology of our current Pope, Benedict XVI.

  • Like most of us, I'm too busy to read even a fraction of what Benedict XVI has written, before and after he became Pope. But I'm very interested to know what he thinks and why. I converted from Evangelical Protestantism in 2001, and understanding the current Pope's approach to the scriptures is extremely important to me. For my money, this book is just "a good read" and a great value. I not only learned what Benedict believes and why, but my own understanding of the bible and my Christian faith have been greatly enriched. The following quote from David Lyle Jeffrey of Baylor University on the dust jacket says what I think better than I can say it: "Scott Hahn has done us a tremendous service by synthesizing Benedict's erudite and prayerful biblical theology into a lively, readable and intellectually reliable conspectus. This excellent volume will be indispensable for all Christians who seek to be more maturely grounded in Scripture."

  • This book is a wonderful insight into the Biblical theology of Pope-emeritus Benedict. He is truly a gift as a theologian and example for other theologians. His view of theology and the reason behind it should be shared by all theologians and Scriptural scholars. His theology is rich and very thoughtful but so beautiful at the same time. Scott Hahn has studied his work thoroughly so it's fun to read this as a peak into Benedict's work. This book has given me a new perspective on Biblical theology and made me want to read some of Benedict's books. Great book!

  • In order to properly comment on the "Covenant and Communion", it is essential to establish author Scott Hahn's impressive credentials, in order to put his work on Pope Benedict's biblical theology into the appropriate perspective. Here an excerpt from WikipediA:

    Hahn received his B.A. in 1979 from Grove City College in Pennsylvania with a triple major of theology, philosophy, and economics (magna cum laude). He obtained his M.Div. (summa cum laude) from Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary in 1982. In May 1995, he was awarded a Ph.D. in systematic theology from Marquette University (Phi Beta Kappa). His dissertation, entitled Kinship by Covenant: A Biblical Theological Analysis of Covenant Types and Texts in the Old and New Testaments, is a significant example of contemporary covenantal theology.

    In the book "Covenant and Communion" Hahn provides us with an eminently readable introduction into the very core of of Pope Benedict's theological vision. It also elucidates the Pope's view on historical criticism, faith and reason, covenant, liturgy and a variety of other topics. Possibly the most important aspect of Hahn's book was the introductory chapter "Ignorance of the Scripture is Ignorance of Christ". For Pope Benedict the Church lives and "takes its being" from the Word of God. Here, with Scott Hahn's exposition on Pope Benedict's book, we have but one example of one of the world's finest theological minds.

    All in all,Hahn's succinct summary of a range of Pope Benedict's theological themes, makes this book of relevance to all Christians, leading them into a deeper reflection of modern theological thought as proposed by Pope Benedict XVI. As a non-Roman Catholic, and not necessarily agreeing with everything, I highly recommend "Covenant and Communion" to clergy and laiety alike.

  • This book is fantastic. Dr. Scott Hahn describes the rich theological method of Pope Benedict XVI as a canonical approach to theology, which locates theology within the history of salvation. If John Paul II will be remembered for his Theology of the Body, then I'll wager that Benedict XVI will be remembered for his profound biblical theology.

    Hahn's presentation will likely resonate with conservative Evangelicals and Protestants who have a love for Sacred Scripture. Hahn reveals Benedict as a biblical theologian par excellence. This has been noted before, but Hahn demonstrates the Holy Father's biblical theology in detail with seven academic essays collected together in this one volume. Hahn also quotes the Holy Father's writings frequently (several times per page) making this book a fine collection of the Holy Father's teaching in his own words. I have already collected a dozen priceless Benedict quotes from this book. It is a great resource.

    I especially appreciated the following two chapters:

    Chapter Two: The Critique of Criticism: Beginning the Search for a New Theological Synthesis
    Chapter Six: The Theology of the Divine Economy: Covenant, Kingdom, and the History of Salvation

    If you're a fan of Pope Benedict or if you're a non-Catholic interested in how Catholics do biblical theology, then this is the book for you.

  • Absolutely EXCELLENT read. Dr. Hahn shows the uniqueness of Pope Benedict in that he was a world class biblical scholar, and tells how Pope Benedict corrected the historical critics who have unfortunately dominated scripture study for decades. What a gift to the Church Pope Benedict is! Scott Hahn, a first class biblical scholar himself, humbly puts forth a superb vision of the biblical theology of Pope Benedict. This essay is for all who love Pope Benedict, or who are interested in scripture studies.
