Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Published anonymously in Italy on the one-year anniversary of Joseph Ratzinger's 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 volume analyzes and critiques the pronouncements of Ratzinger. Addressing some of the most dramatic and pressing issues of our time, Against Ratzinger studies the pope's responses to birth control, abortion, and sexual abuse in the Church. Against Ratzinger charts Ratzinger's rise to power from his arrival in Rome in 1981 and addresses his close relationship with the late Pope John Paul II.

Synopsis:

A critique of the Pope's arguments and beliefs examines his speeches and writings; analyzes his views on such subjects as birth control, abortion, and sexual abuse in the Church; and tracks his rise to his current position.
