QUOTATION: Doctrines

Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI)
Originally there was no such thing as a series of doctrinal propositions that could be enumerated one after the other and entered in a book as a well-defined body of dogmas. Such a notion, which today may be difficult to resist, would have to be described as a misconception of the nature of the Christian assent to the God revealed in Christ.

--Cardinal Josef Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), Introduction to Christianity, 1968
