Overview

Without Roots: The West, Relativism, Christianity, Islam by Pope Benedict XVI, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Marcello Pera


Bringing together their unique vantage points as leaders of Church and State, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger and Marcello Pera challenge us to imagine what can be the future of a civilization that has abandoned its moral and cultural history. They call on the West to embrace a spiritual rather than political renewal -and to accept the moral values that alone can help us to make sense of changes in technology, economics, and society.
