New Lace Sleeves,
This review is from: Ratzinger's Faith: The Theology of Pope Benedict XVI (Kindle Edition)
Surprisingly there were no other reviews of this book before I came along, so I thought I'd do the business.
Written by Tracey Rowland whom Cardinal Pell of Sydney calls "Australia's leading theologian", this book is dryer than grass in a year-long drought. It's very bookish and academic with many scholarly terms. I can see why Solomon (assuming he authored the book) wrote, "Of making many books there is no end, and much study wearies the body." (Ecclesiastes 12:11). The book began to tire me out in its first pages.
Pell states in his foreward that no, "No Pope in history has published as much high quality theology on such a variety of topics as Pope Benedict XVI". Actually, from some of the stuff I have read from his books, and some of the reviews, he just repeats much of the same stuff. And he's not very original.
Ratzinger likes Mozart and Bach. He should retire and go and play some. It will be greatest contribution to humanity!
The title of the review refers to the fact that Joey has (apparently) a penchant for silk and satin costumes, as stated in Murder in the Vatican: The CIA and the Bolshevik Pontiff.

Yeah, he couldn't hack it! MUYANE, too.
May the Virgin Mary lead you into all truth, away from the Catholic Church!
