Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published anonymously in Italy on the one-year anniversary of Ratzingers election to the papacy, Against Ratzinger caused a national stir and immediately shot onto bestseller lists. Now America, the home of over 67 million Catholics, will have the opportunity to wrestle with this insightful and revealing examination of Pope Benedict XVI. This concise volume analyzes and critiques the pronouncements of Ratzinger. Addressing some of the most dramatic and pressing issues of our time, Against Ratzigner studies the Popes responses to birth control, abortion, and sexual abuse in the Church. Against Ratzinger charts Ratzingers rise to power from his arrival in Rome in 1981 and addresses his close relationship with the late Pope John Paul II.

Book News Annotation:

Contro Ratzinger was published in 2006 by Saggiotore in Milan. The treatise analyzes Benedict XVI's moral and philosophical commitments and his message to the faithful and the world by looking at his instructions as prefect, his lectures as a theologian, and his pronouncements as pope. Among other discussions is a comparison of the media figure cut by the current pope compared to that of the previous one. There is no index or bibliography.
