The theology of Joseph Ratzinger

Aidan Nichols, OP, wrote a book with this title. I started to read it now. One thing I learned today is that Augustine was very influential on Ratzinger's theological thought. He wrote in 1969: "Augustine has kept me company for more than 20 years. I have developed my theology in a dialogue with Augustine, though naturally I have tried to conduct this dialogue as a man of today."
