Translated from the German.
Pope Benedict made history by being the first Pope in over a thousand years to resign from office. The Catholic Church the world over was stunned. Faced with the internecine warfare in the Vatican, by accusations of corruption in the Church and by a seemingly endless series of clerical sex scandals he decided that the resolution of all these problems was outside his power for a man of his age. In this book, Benedict speaks with disarming honesty and humility of his inner life, his life of prayer and his firm belief in God.
