About the Author

On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the "defender of the faith." Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new "Catechism of the Catholic Church," published in 1994.

Peter Hunermann, Ph.D. did his studies in philosophy and theology in Rome, Munich, and Freiburg, and then was Professor of Dogmatics in Munster and Tobingen. He is the Co-founder and former President of the European Society for Catholic Theology.

By Jerry M. Merritt on May 21, 2009
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.

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.
