The memoirs of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, now Pope Benedict the Sixteenth. "It was a fascinating book to read for insight into the spirituality, theology and personal background of this man who has become so broadly influential over the past couple of decades. As a Protestant I read with satisfaction the depth of his commitment to the scriptures and the way his outstanding intellectual ability has been applied to grappling with the ways of God. He also gave me insight into how he deals with the traditions and doctrines of the Church that are not directly traceable to Scripture. For example, he opens wide a mystical door into understanding his perspective on the Church's relatively recent doctrine of the bodily assumption of Mary into heaven. I came away with a deep respect for the spiritual character of this man and clearer understanding of what the disagreements are about within the body of Christ. I know what I don't agree with and why, but I also understand how decisions that may seem odd to me are made. I also have the confidence that they should not cause complete breakdown in communication." (Lynn Green, chairman of YWAM)
