This book was written in 1971 by Joseph Ratzinger, the man who was the Pope (Benedict XVI), It has the Vatican Imprimatur on the back of the title page. It states that the book is free of moral or doctrinal error. The book is in fine condition and bound in an attractive brown cloth. All corners are square and there is no soiling. The dustjacket has a couple of very minor flaws. There is a tiny chip to the outside extreme top front panel and just a touch of shelfwear to the top and bottom of the spine. It is hardly noticeable. The back panel has one very small closed tear at the bottom and one at the top. It shows a touch of toning. The book looks really good despite of these minor issues. The dustjacket is not price-clipped. The book is primarily a theological essay and it is 112 pages long. To own a book by a fairly recent head of the church that was written long before he became Pope is an insight into how this man thinks and what his beliefs truly are, A remarkable and unusual volume. A Great copy. We are pleased to send pictures on request.
