Evangelical Richard Mouw Comments On Pope's Recent Visit

Fuller Theological Seminary President Richard Mouw was invited to be a part of a roundtable of thinkers commenting on the Pope’s recent visit to the US for the New York Times.

But the attraction of a pope-in-a-stadium has its own unique meaning, I think. In a “post-modern” age Benedict represents something that is decidedly pre-modern. He comes to America as one who knows how to walk ancient paths. He models a chastity that stands in sharp contrast to the easy promiscuity of our culture. Yet he is conversant with our present-day patterns of thought. He brings much learning to what he has to say to us.
