Anyone wanting to understand Pope Benedict XVI's view of the relationship between Christianity and the world must read this eloquent book. Secular thought has failed to answer the great questions of human existence. Benedict XVI invites us to rediscover the Christ-centered basis for hope.

The Yes of Jesus Christ is a short book by Joseph Ratzinger that offers reflections on faith, hope, and love. In the first part, the book begins with the question, "Is faith an attitude worthy of a modern and mature human being?" The answer is an obvious yes, but Ratzinger goes on to explain that there are three elements of everyday faith. 1. Its always directed to someone who "knows" the matter at hand. 2. Trust of the majority who in their daily use of things are able to build less on the subs ...more

This is only 3 stars because it pales in comparison to so many other works by Joseph Ratzinger. Still some real nuggets.

In this small book of reflections, Benedict's writing, as in everything else I've read of his, is extremely approachable. A true master.

Short and insightful. Reflections on Faith, Hope, and love from a retreat he conducted and 2 short related sermons. Perhaps a bit more accessible than many of his works.

This series of talks delivered as a retreat in the eighties is magnificent. Ratzinger is always precise in his writing, but here he is at pains for clarity as well, as the profound truths he seeks to articulate are of monumental importance for the people of our age. With a discerning eye, he tackles the deep relevance of the often obscure theological virtues (basing much of his understanding of them on Pieper's landmark work) to the Church and to the world, making the connections necessary for u ...more

I have already read this book twice, and I am sure I shall read it again. It is an amazing experiential reflection on the theological virtues and the particular obstacles to living them in our time.

A very traditional but sound reflection on faith, hope, and love. Pope Benedict's analysis of the despair at the heart of modernity is right on target.
