"The pope's deep and passionate love for the adventure of theology shines through this text, which is geared to the reasonably educated lay reader. Not only papal enthusiasts but also libraries and professional theologians will want to have this book." --Theological Studies
"I have never read an author who identifies and explains all the essential questions with such intelligence and clarity...It should be the number one choice of anyone who wants to understand more fully the contemporary predicament in which both Church and culture find themselves...It is not too much to say that if you haven't read this book-as the best way to understand the thought of Pope Benedict XVI-you are doomed to have significant gaps in your own analysis of how things are. So if you can read only one more intellectually serious book this year, read Tracey Rowland's Ratzinger's Faith.
" -- Dr. Jeff Mirus, CatholicCulture.org
"Tracey Rowland's excellent exposition of his thought...Ratzinger's Faith
is meant to be an exploration of the Pope's thinking, not a thematic biography. But Professor Rowland treats Benedict's ideas with a keen eye to his life, and she largely succeeds in giving us a well developed theology-in-history." -- Jeremy Lott, Catholic World Report
