The first serious assessment of the Pope's theological vision, this thoughtful volume situates the thought of Benedict XVI within the intellectual history and academic circles of his time, exploring topics such as the interpretations of the Second Vatican Council, Benedict's relations with
other important scholars and theologians, and his attitudes on moral and political theology, western culture, the structure of the Catholic Church, liturgy, and love. It is a common observation that Pope Benedict has been influenced by the thought of St. Augustine in contrast to many of his
predecessors in the papacy who were much more strongly influenced by St. Thomas Aquinas. This work therefore addresses the topic of in what way Benedict is an Augustinian. The volume also includes a bibliography arranged thematically for those who want to explore his thought more deeply in a
particular area. A penetrating account of the thought of the reigning pontiff, this volume offers a wealth of insight for everyone interested in Pope Benedict.

Benedict/Ratzinger has shown himself to be more conciliatory in his leadership than many had exoected. Tracey Rowland's study, written for readers who are not necessarily theologians, helps us understand why.
a book with an inspirational message.
a fascinating book
an accessible survey of the theological landscape by an author completely at ease and in tune with her subject
[Rowland] has not only mastered a vast body of work in four languages but managed to write about it engagingly, in a style accessible to the general reader.
Ratzinger's Faith is intelligent and fascinating. Although it is academic, it is accessible, clear and rarely dry. It is the sort of book that will help Catholics and non-Catholics who have encountered Ratzinger as Pope Benedict begin to understand why he does the things he does.
Professor Rowland's study of Benedict XVI's thought, drawn from his addresses and writings, is an important, notably intelligent and stimulating introduction.
Pope Benedict emerges from this book as a theologian of profound intellectual depth, clarity, and enterprise.
Ratzinger's Faith is an intriguing look at a punchy pontiff.
