Summary:

This book presents a short biography of Joseph Ratzinger in both a human and a historical context. Starting with the pope's early years in Bavaria and his youth during the Second World War, it then outlines his academic career, how the student riots of 1968 transformed him from a liberal to a conservative theologian, his time at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and some of the more dramatic and public interventions he made in that position. Finally, the book looks at the opening days of his pontificate and assesses the likely pattern of the papacy of Benedict XVI.
