Truth and Tolerance is my second favorite Ratzinger book, after Introduction to Christianity. The essays that make up Truth and Tolerance provide a highly sophisticated and nuanced treatment of both the problems associated with relativism and the problems associated with truth claims. It has been some years since I have read it. One of Ratzinger's observations that has stayed with me is that that the idea that Christians should not "impose" their values on other cultures through missionary work is patronizing (as though non-Christians cannot handle hearing about a foreign idea) and contrary to the often professed value of "dialogue." I also recall that somewhere in Truth & Tolerance Ratzinger expresses his opinion that it was providential that Christianity burst upon the Hellenic scene not long after Greek philosophy had reasoned its way to the "God of philosophy." One cannot love an an abstract idea, one can love only a person and this person is found in Christ.
