"The timely republication of this work opens up vistas that have been obscured recently by controversy and confusion. Cardinal Ratzinger's treatment of election and rejection is like reading the surprising solution of a mystery story. This work is even more meaningful now when disunity leads to deep conflict within the Church." — Benedict J. Groeschel, C.F.R., Author, The Reform of Renewal
"Highly commended as a synthesis of ecumenism. It explains the author's lifelong emphasis on what unites the followers of Christ, rather than what divides them as 'separated brethren.' With no compromise of Catholic principles, it explains how 'the two communities—Catholic and Protestant' are to 'regard each other as sisters in the Lord ... and individual Christians on both sides as brothers to each other.'" — John Hardon, S.J., Author, The Catholic Catechism
"Having read this book many times, I have found it to be invaluable in understanding the message of Scripture, the significance of the Catholic Church and Ratzinger's theology. He has captured the very heart and soul of Scripture." — Scott Hahn, University of Steubenville
