Book Review: Great Teachers

Over the past few weeks I have had the pleasure of reading Pope Benedict XVI's Great Teachers.  Having enjoyed other books based on catecheses from his weekly general audiences, I suspected that I'd be equally pleased with this book.  I'm happy to report that I found this book every bit as good as his series entitled The Fathers.

As you can probably surmise by looking at the title of this book, Pope Benedict XVI, discusses the great teachers of the church in this volume.  His ability to tell the stories of each of these inspiring great minds will hold your attention and keep you wanting to know more.  Some of those featured in this book have been discussed to some degree in his volumes on The Fathers, but by no means are the stories redundant.

In reading this book I came to know a handful of saints a bit better, and I was introduced to the work of many other great minds.  The Pope's way with words will leave you wanting to read more when you come to the final page of this book.

This review was written as part of the Catholic book reviewer program from The Catholic Company.  Visit The Catholic Company to find more information on Great Teachers-Pope Benedict XVI.  They are also a great source for a Catechism of the Catholic Church or a Catholic Bible.

As a reviewer for The Catholic Company's Catholic book reviewer program, I was provided with a free review copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

  1. Hi Karen, that is so great that you are a reviewer for this company. I would love to do that! How do you get to do something like that? I've not read this book yet and will have to do so!
