Wow. This is a book that I'll be going back to repeatedly. Such good insights into what Scripture really tells us and that is often glossed over. I also was impressed by how Ratzinger (because he wrote this as a personal project, not as Pope Benedict) always began by acknowledging what modern theology, science, and popular opinion would say about certain subjects ... before going on to unpack what is known and what can be reasonably assumed. His way of constantly bringing the material back to what it means to us as believing Christians was also wonderful and the most helpful part of the material.

A proper review will follow.
