Description
 
Pope Benedict XVI, A Biography of Joseph Ratzinger, by John L.  Allen, Jr. (Vatican correspondent for the National Catholic Reporter).  Allen traces Ratzinger's story from his Bavarian roots (including unwilling participation in the Hitler Youth movement), to his support for Vatican II and to the unique relationship he shared with Pope John Paul II.  As "the Vatican's enforcer of the Faith," Cardinal Ratzinger never failed to polarize opinions, attracting praise and blame in equal mesure.  He is certain to continue to do so as Pope.  This book needs to be read by Catholic and non-Catholics alike to understand the mind of a man who now occupies one of the most powerful offices on earth.
