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.
