Ratzinger in print again
I’m surprised that no other Catholic blogs that I’ve seen have noticed that a new book is out that includes the historic discussion between Pope Benedict XVI, then a Cardinal, and the famous philosopher Jürgen Habermas on prepolitical moral foundations. The new volume, entitled Political Theologies: Public Religions in a Post-Secular World, gathers a number of essays by some of the most prominent scholars in the areas of political and social theology and philosophy, including our beloved Pope Benedict. It looks like a challenging read; it doesn’t get much more academic than putting Ratzinger and Habermas in the same discourse!

I hope this one shows up under the Christmas tree!
