This is a superb exposition of Pope Benedict's social thought in all its richness, beginning with the Christian anthropology on which it is founded and ending with a vision of culture. Conscious of rising secularism and the political apathy of the young, Rourke seeks to demonstrate the fine balance of reason and faith in the Pope's thought, and succeeds admirably. Benedict is one of the most important intellectual leaders of our time, and he is well served by this introduction. -- Stratford Caldecott, editor, Second Spring: A Journal of Faith of Culture
Rourke combs through the pre-papal writings of Joseph Ratzinger and some of his statements since his elevation to the papacy and presents him as a deep and important thinker about social and political questions. . . . This volume is a very accessible and largely comprehensive survey of Benedict's political ideas. * Review of Metaphysics, June 2010 *
