Erstmals in der Geschichte des Christentums: Ein Papst zieht die Bilanz seiner Amtszeit In den Gesprächen, die Papst Benedikt XVI. mit dem Journalisten Peter Seewald kurz vor und nach seinem Rücktritt geführt hat, blicken sie auf das Pontifikat des deutschen Papstes zurück. Nie zuvor hat Benedikt XVI. so offen über die Hintergründe seiner überraschenden Demission und die Erneuerung des Glaubens als das große Thema seines Pontifikats gesprochen, aber auch über kontroverse Themen seiner Amtszeit, etwa das Verhältnis zu Juden und Muslimen/Islam, Vatileaks oder die Affäre um die Piusbruderschaft. Und nie zuvor hat dieser Papst so persönlich über seinen Zugang zum Glauben, die gegenwärtigen Herausforderungen für das Christentum und die Zukunft der Kirche Auskunft gegeben. Seine Erinnerungen an die Familie, an wichtige Weggefährten und prägende Ereignisse seines Lebens unterstreichen den besonderen Charakter dieses Buches. Nach den Interviewbüchern "Salz der Erde", "Gott und die Welt" und "Licht der Welt", die Benedikt XVI./Joseph Ratzinger und Peter Seewald veröffentlicht haben und die allesamt Bestseller waren, sind die "Letzten Gespräche" das Vermächtnis des deutschen Papstes, einem der bedeutendsten Denker und Theologen unserer Zeit. Er hat acht Jahre lang die Geschicke des Vatikan geleitet und als Pontifex Maximus an der Spitze der katholischen Kirche mit ihren 1,3 Milliarden Mitgliedern bedeutende Wegmarkierungen gesetzt und wichtige Impulse für die Kirche des 3. Jahrtausends gegeben. Über den Bestseller "Licht der Welt" notierte die "Süddeutsche Zeitung": "Seewalds Interviewbuch mit dem Papst ist selbstverständlich eine Sensation: So ausführlich hat noch nie ein Papst Rede und Antwort gestanden" (SZ, 20.12.2010). Benedikt XVI., 1927 als Joseph Ratzinger geboren, war Professor für Theologie, Erzbischof von München und Freising (1977-1982) und Präfekt der Glaubenskongregation (1982-2005), bevor er im Konklave 2005 zum Papst gewählt wurde; 2013 überraschte er die Welt mit seinem Rücktritt. Peter Seewald, Jahrgang 1954, arbeitete als Journalist für den SPIEGEL, den STERN und das Magazin der SÜDDEUTSCHEN ZEITUNG. Er gilt heute als einer der erfolgreichsten religiösen Autoren Deutschlands. Seine bekanntesten Bücher sind neben "Salz der Erde", "Gott und die Welt" und "Licht der Welt" die Werke "Jesus Christus. Die Biografie" und "Gott ohne Volk?" (zus. mit Bischof Stefan Oster).

�I think that if you�re an editor, and you do what�s right, you occasionally have to say �no� to people. To the good people, the professionals, that�s fine. But the people who are �hacks,� they won�t like that.� As an American comic book writer, editor, and businessman, Jim Shooter (b. 1951) remains among the most important figures in the history of the medium. Starting in 1966 at the age of fourteen, Shooter, as the young prot�g� of verbally abusive DC editor Mort Weisinger, helped introduce themes and character development more commonly associated with DC competitor Marvel Comics. Shooter created several characters for the Legion of Super-Heroes, introduced Superman�s villain the Parasite, and jointly devised the first race between the Flash and Superman. When he later ascended to editor-in-chief at Marvel Comics, the company, indeed the medium as a whole, was moribund. Yet by the time Shooter left the company a mere decade later, the industry had again achieved considerable commercial viability, with Marvel dominating the market. Shooter enjoyed many successes during his tenure, such as Chris Claremont and John Byrne�s run on the Uncanny X-Men, Byrne�s work on the Fantastic Four, Frank Miller�s Daredevil stories, Walt Simonson�s crafting of Norse mythology in Thor, and Roger Stern�s runs on Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man, as well as his own successes writing Secret Wars and Secret Wars II. After a rift at Marvel, Shooter then helped lead Valiant Comics into one of the most iconic comic book companies of the 1990s, before moving to start-up companies Defiant and Broadway Comics. Interviews collected in this book span Shooter�s career. Included here is a 1969 interview that shows a restless teenager; the 1973 interview that returned Shooter to comics; a discussion from 1980 during his pinnacle at Marvel; and two conversations from his time at Valiant and Defiant Comics. At the close, an extensive, original interview encompasses Shooter�s full career.
