    I Also Recommend:

    Fascinating portrait of Pope Benedict XVI by the journalist who most likely knows our Pope as no other journalist does.

    Peter Seewald tells us how he came to know Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger. It all started with his research for an article. That research snowballed into a fascinating journey that led the author to requesting meeting and interviewing the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. We are introduced to the world of portait journalism: the research, red tape, interviews, speculation, friends and enemies, and weekends spent questioning Joseph Ratzinger. We learn how the journey becomes a fruitful, enduring friendship and best-selling phenomena.
