As Joseph Ratzinger mentions in the preface, "the book presents in written form three sermons that the author preached in the Cathedral at Muenster to a congregation from the Catholic Student Chaplaincy, December 13-15, 1964."
In other words, these are essays derived from sermons preached to college students toward the end of Vatican II. They are remarkable, among other reasons, for their insights into the ongoing Christian struggle to understand and realize in action "what it means to be a Christian".
This is one of Pope Benedict XVI's earliest books, written while still a priest. But it is a great book on the Christian life and faith. While it has particular import for the Catholic celebration of Advent, it can be read and reflected upon at any time during the year. It is a short read but is very deep. It is a great read.
