I regularly found myself agreeing strongly

By: 'Neil Ormerod' - 4th of August 2008

There is much to like about this book. It provides a solid introduction to the thought and writings of Joseph Ratzinger together with those of Pope John Paul II. He [the author, Tilley – Ed.] writes with intelligence and wit, at times in a folksy way. He has identified key issues in Ratzinger’s thought, the concerns with modern relativism, subjectivism and individualism, the loss of a sense of tradition and so on. He explains complex philosophical and theological terms and debates in a way which makes them intelligible to a lay readership. I regularly found myself agreeing strongly with points and analyses made by the author in relation to the concerns of relativism and so on.
