Pope Benedict XVI with Peter Seewald
Pope Benedict XVI, the only modern-day Pope in over 700 years to retire whilst in office, has been devoted himself to a life of prayer and study and has vowed to remain silent after his retirement. He has lived quietly in a convent in the Vatican gardens in Rome.

It is a unique book insofar as no other living Pope has had the opportunity to write an account having left office.
