I wasn't the biggest fan of J. Ratzinger, if I am honest with you, but this book is outstanding. He presents a clear picture of the development of the doctrine, with particular attention to the XX Century, to then give a very balanced systematic approach. It is clear, easily understandable, and at the same time fine and deep in its thought. I very much would recommend this book to someone who is studying Christian doctrine and would like to get a clear picture on Eschatology.

About the author (1988)

On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the "defender of the faith." Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new "Catechism of the Catholic Church," published in 1994.
