One of the problems the Church faces today is the lack of hope in society, even among its own members. As the head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and one of the most prominent voices inside the Vatican, Cardinal Gerhard Müller provides a credible, thoughtful and compelling call to hope in the family, society and Church in clear and inspiring terms in his new book, THE CARDINAL MÜLLER REPORT: An Exclusive Interview on the State of the Church.

THE CARDINAL MÜLLER REPORT, like its acclaimed predecessor, The Ratzinger Report, is written in an interview format, with Father Carlos Granados asking Müller the questions whose answers will help satisfy the wonderings weighing heavy on the hearts of the faithful and those searching for hope during turbulent times.

Granados sets out to get answers to the questions surrounding hope that he has seen in his contemporaries. A big question being whether there is hope for the “now,” and wondering if this hope can be found in Christianity. But above all is the question, “What is the foundation of Christian hope?”

Müller discusses what we can hope for from Christ, the Church, the family and society. He thoroughly explores the effect of hope on each relevant subject, and provides the key to an understanding of mercy, which was added to compliment the book in conjunction with the recent Year of Mercy as declared by Pope Francis.

“In this wide-ranging interview, Cardinal Müller, in clear and inspiring language, offers thoughtful insights into the possibility and reality of an authentic, faith-based hope that comes from Christ and permeates the Church, the family and even society,” Most Rev. Robert Vasa, bishop of Santa Rosa, California, says of THE CARDINAL MÜLLER REPORT.

  1. Since Ignatius was founded by a Jesuit, I had questions regarding it’s general theological cant. Ignatius Press was founded by a TIGER, Rev. Joseph Fessio, S.J. His PhD advisor was our beloved Benedict!!!!

    When books being proferred as authentic representations of things as important as the Curia, it’s wise to check the source, which in this case seems bulletproof. So check his history out, it’s v impressive.
