Pope Benedict: Bible Cannot Be Taken Literally
In all the areas of doctrine, I was always weary about Ratzinger when it came to Biblical exegesis. As a theologian, Ratzinger was an all out Modernist with Biblical exegesis and Biblical scholarship. He fell for the liberal line that has dominated for a century and made famous by heretics like Teilhard de Chardin and Raymond Brown. It has only been through the efforts of people like Dr. Robert Sungenis and Gerry Matatics, that the traditional literal understanding of the Bible is being rescued from the Modernists who are demythologizing the Bible.

For example, Ratzinger has written before that he believes that the first five books of the Bible, which the Jews call the Torah, was actually written by a committee during the Babylonian captivity following the latest findings of modern Biblical scholars of the last century. This goes completely against the tradition of the Church, the Church fathers, and traditional teaching which has always asserted that Moses is the author of the first five books of the Bible.
