La vida de la Iglesia siempre ha sido rica en personas cuyo amor por Cristo definía la totalidad de su existencia. Es también el caso de Joseph Ratzinger, protagonista de excepción del cambio de milenio, quien pone de manifiesto en esta autobiografía, plena de sentido del humor, inteligencia y pasión, que toda su vida ha estado y está marcada por el lema que escogió para su escudo episcopal: «Cooperatores veritatis». Como no podía ser de otro modo, al hilo de su historia personal, el autor repasa los grandes problemas de la Iglesia en este siglo, dando una visión plena de lucidez e inteligencia. Más allá de otros libros también de corte biográfico ya publicados, generalmente en forma de entrevistas, el cardenal Joseph Ratzinger abre su corazón de par en par en esta obra al lector.
