Product description


Title mentioned following article by author in Catholic Herald, 2008.

'Benedict has remained remarkably consistent in his theology, even if the issues facing the Church have shifted in recent years.' The Thought of Benedict XVI

"A timely book, considering his election as Pope, The Thought of Pope Benedict XVI is the first full-scale investigation of Ratzinger's theology in its development from the 1950s to the present day. the book, enhanced by updates, will help Catholics get to know the leader of their faith."

'Those who want to get closer to this thinker should consult [The Thought of Pope Benedict XVI]. This, the first study of its kind in English, is a meticulously researched, lucid account of Ratzinger's thought.' Economist

'A beautiful presentation of the theological achievement of Joseph Ratzinger combines a confident grasp of the general trends of Ratzinger's thinking with almost a poet's feel for particularities of place and with a trained historian's sense of the period.' Chesterton Review

'An important introduction, not only to the mind and heart of one man, but to the intellectual ferment of his times.' Expository Times

'Nichols begins his book with an excellent chapter on the historical background of Ratzinger, tracing the history of Bavaria from its beginnings and giving much interesting material about the Church in Germany in the time of Hitler.' Priests and People

'Anyone who wants to understand where Ratzinger is coming from should read it carefully.' National Catholic Register

'So good an introduction is this book that I am eager to read more of Ratzinger, for he has a lot to say; not least, in criticism of my own position.' Reformed Theological Review

'A highly lucid presentation of Ratzinger's theology, which reveals a complete mastery of his writings as well as the secondary literature.' Heythrop Journal
