Dr. Scott Hahn on 5 Years w/ Benedict XVI

On the fifth anniversary of Pope Benedict's election to the Papacy, Dr. Scott Hahn published a short piece in the National Catholic Register focusing on the Pope's impact on Biblical studies within the Church. Hahn shows how Benedict has devoted a lot of time and ink to building up Biblical studies in the Church. Of course this is nothing new for Benedict, whose many works were saturated with the Scriptures well before his election to the See of Peter. While this article is not very long, you can get a more comprehensive understanding of Pope Benedict's Biblical theology in Hahn's Covenant and Communion: The Biblical Theology 0f Pope Benedict XVI. As Hahn puts it at the end of the NCR article: "I believe this will be his lasting legacy to the Church: to restore the word of God to its rightful place at the center of Church life." I agree 100%.
