    A fine introduction to our new pope

    Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was no doubt the best known member of the College of Cardinals going into the recent papal conclave. But once he emerged from those closed doors as our new pope, the world began to take a second, closer look at this already-famous man who had become the leader of 1.1 billion Catholics. How had he been impacted by the Nazi regime during his youth in Germany? What was his relationship to the Second Vatican Council? What have been the main themes of his numerous theological writings? Addressing these and other important issues, Catholic historian Matthew Bunson reacquaints us with Benedict XVI. More than just a biography, this book also reports in some detail on the events surrounding the papal transition: John Paul¿s passing, the interregnum, the issues facing the conclave, the election, the telling scenarios of Benedict¿s first days on Peter¿s throne. The text includes a number of additional valuable features: a useful glossary; an explanation of the new papal coat of arms; an appendix of the pope¿s books available in English; a list of all the popes with the dates of their reign; and a chronology of global events showing Benedict¿s life against the backdrop of recent world history. Sixteen pages of mostly color photographs illustrate his various roles of service to the Church over a lifetime. In sum, Bunson has written an insightful look at recent events in Rome and a useful introduction, or re-introduction, to our new Holy Father.
