November 26 book giveaway: “John Paul II: My Beloved Predecessor” by Pope Benedict XVI/Joseph Ratzinger

Here’s the description at the Pauline Books website:

This collection of texts by Benedict XVI, composed both before and after his election to the pontificate, is a testimony to his close relationship with John Paul II, born of over a quarter of a century of close collaboration by two of the most important religious figures of the new millennium. Benedict explores John Paul II’s life: his vocation and how it matured, his passion for philosophy and theology, his academic studies and influences, and his pontificate. Read the book you’ve been hearing about and gain unique insight into the minds of our two most recent popes!

May the memory of John Paul II and the study of his work and his teaching bring you closer to Christ. May these be the nucleus of unity in a shared struggle for the future of the Church and of the nation. I extend my heartfelt blessing to all, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”
Pope Benedict XVI

Features twelve selections, including Ratzinger’s tribute to John Paul II on the occasion of the twentieth anniversary of his pontificate, as well as the moving homily delivered by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger at the funeral Mass of “our late beloved Pope John Paul II.”

Also features a special full-color photo insert!
