More About the Author

Born in 1927 in Germany as Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI has been head of the Roman Catholic Church since April 2005. A prolific author, theologian and university professor, Ratzinger served as an "expert" at the Second Vatican Council, and was tapped in 1977 by Pope Paul VI to lead the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. In 1981, Pope John Paul II called him to Rome to head the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he served until his papal election.

Format: Hardcover
Although this book is only 126 pages, there is quite a bit of information in it. The Pope talks about Sacred Scripture and its relationship with the Church and Sacred Tradtion. For a better understanding of how Scripture and Tradition works whithin the Church, I would recommend this book. Be prepared to take your time and digest each paragraph. These 126 pages offer hours of theological explanation. No fluff here.

An in-depth view of the concepts and reasons of Roman Catholic doctrine. I have read several other books by Pope Benedict that were much easier to read. While well written and thoroughly researched, I found this book most probably aimed at Priests rather than a lay person. As always, you will learn from the author but you may have to keep a good dictionary handy and do some personal research to get to the heart of some issues. I have thoroughly enjoyed each book of his that I have read and this one was no exception. I will warn you that this is not casual reading but a serious look at who Catholics are and why.
