Format: Paperback
"Meditation for the Day" books, in my life, usually only make it to mid-February. Ten years ago I easily and readily followed this one all the way to December 31. I highly recommend it now not only for that purpose, but as a fine introduction to the theological insight of the new pope.

It cannot be stressed enough, of course, that Papa Ratzi is, was, and shall always be an intellectual. He will not be everybody's cup of tea, but if in doubt, try him -- he is worth the effort. These excerpts are very carefully chosen to highlight some of his best and most evocative writing. As much of his writing appeared only in obscure theological journals, this was obviously no small feat. The German nun who put this together deserves great credit. Each nugget is perfectly rounded off at either end, most no longer than a page. And each is, indeed, a thought -- not an ecstasy, rant, or podge of pietistic mumbling -- elegant and clear. And indeed food for a following day's thought, something that will stick with you.

Ratzinger's voice, of course, is post-Vatican 2; the Christian community is a recurring theme. But it is often enough linked to the greater body of pre-existing Catholic teaching on the sacred mysteries that the council was supposed to merely restate in a modern idiom, not alter. Some may tire of a certain scholarly bent, a lack of tough confrontation with either you or the whole bad world. No, he is no Father Corapi -- nor has he the studied largescale dynamics of a Sheen. There is a certain cloistered air to the meditions, for sure. But their strength is in an unaffected grace, beauty in clarity, and certain conviction. If not shouted from the mountaintops, Ratzinger's meditations are quite obviously so part and parcel of him he probably repeats them in his sleep. Simply, this is another of those little books that had unique value whether or not the writer held any high ofice, much less the papacy.

Format: Paperback
While not the most original work in the field of Dogmatics and Catechetical work, this is a concise and approachable book that would serve nicely as a reference guide for those who find the official Catechism too dry or difficult to read. What is nice about this volume is that there is Catechism reference numbers that correspond to the subjects Pennock addresses at a given point in the book for those who wish to research further.

Having looked at many "Introductions to Catholicism" in order to better recommend books to those inquiring about a simple reference book to better understand their faith, I have found that this works well as both an introduction to Catholic faith and as an introduction to the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

The simple Question and Answer format allows for this book to be "taken it at your own pace".

Love Pope Benedict XVI's writings. Profound, and I particularly like this book because you read an entry per day, so you can have time to ponder what you just read.

This is a wonderful daily nourishment of important topics and truths that are central to our lives. Its a great book even if not a Catholic. It is also really simple to read. The truths are universal and therefore relevant to everyone.
