Children need to know Pope Benedict XVI not only as a great man of God but as he was, a child and a teenager like themselves. Growing up in Germany was for Joseph Ratzinger both a peaceful and a dangerous time. He had the inner peace and stability of a devout Catholic family life, but all around this family the evils of Nazism and World War II raged. The family lived under this threat and had to struggle to remain Catholic in a hostile environment. In the midst of all this, young Joseph Ratzinger found his vocation and suffered persecution because of his decision to become a Catholic priest. Lifelike dialog and beautiful pen-and-ink illustrations make the young Joseph come to life. Includes quotations from Benedict XVI, a chronology, and a glossary.
