We encourage you to read the book ahead of time. However, this is not required. The presentations on each section will be of benefit both to those who have read the book and to those preparing to read the book. The minimum we suggest is that you read the Preface to the 2nd Edition written by Cardinal Ratzinger in 2000. For those of you unable to obtain a copy of the book prior to the event, a PDF of the Preface can be obtained by e-mailing
