Joseph Ratzinger, before becoming Pope Benedict XVI, had already achieved a reputation as an excellent thinker. We are in the presence of a true intellectual, in the classic sense of the word, a philosopher who has never given up on the search for the truth. His writings on thought and theology have been translated into dozens of languages, and in these we find that these ideas now, like Benedict XVI, are advocated from the papacy. In this book, Benedict XVI presents writings, discourses, and homilies that are fundamental in his career. The reader, whether religious or not, will feel captivated by the thinking of a man, who, without a doubt, is a pope and an intellectual.
