In the worldwide best seller Values in a Time of Upheaval, Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI) passionately defends the role traditional Judeo-Christian values should play in a pluralistic society and a multicultural world. He examines such crucial contemporary issues as the moral foundations of a free society, the role of spiritual values in promoting human rights, current challenges to Western culture, and the place of faith and love of God in finding true peace. Joseph Ratzinger proposes a balance of faith and reason that avoids the extremes of fundamentalist theocracies and secular, relativist states.

Topics include:

Politics and morality

Peace

The meaning of history

Truth in a pluralistic world

The moral basis of democratic states

Relativism

Human dignity

The Christian basis for hope

Bioethics

Freedom

Human rights and responsibilities

Marriage and family

Tradition and progress

Review:

First published in April 2005 in Germany, Values in a Time of Upheaval instantly became a bestseller. The critique of relativism Ratzinger offered as the world mourned Pope John Paul II is here presented in richer detail. In chapters on the history and destiny of human life, Benedict XVI covers such topics as the dangers of secularism, the meaning of truth in a pluralistic world, morality, and the Christian basis for hope. --From the Publisher

As a Cardinal, Benedict XVI was a close associate of John Paul II. He was elected to the papacy in April 2005.
