This book also recounts Joseph Ratzinger's calling and ordination to the priesthood, the intellectual and spiritual formation he received, his early days as a parish priest, his role as an expert at the Second Vatican Council, his experience as a popular university professor and theologian, and his appointment as Archbishop of Munich-Freising in Germany. Joseph Ratzinger would go on to serve for over two decades as the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith under John Paul II, before being elected pope himself in 2005.
Written before Benedict XVI became pope, Milestones remains a valuable road map to the man's mind and heart. It dispels the media myths and legends, and it reveals the real Benedict XVI-a man of the Church who loves God and humanity, a scholar, a theologian, a teacher, and a humble pastor with deep compassion and profound spiritual insight. Illustrated.

After reading this work by Pope Benedict XVI, I realized that his childhood life was different than the rumors that I had heard while reading about him from outside sources. The interesting thing about this book is how he is able to show the reader how his life was truly different than what most people thought it was. He was also able to explain to the reader how the Nazi party forced people into their organization.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
