Details

In his first book written as Pope, Benedict XVI shares a personal approach to the figure at the very centre of Christian faith. Accessible and illuminating, Jesus of Nazareth is an antidote to the academic search for the ‘historical’ Jesus. This work by a reigning Pope who is also an accomplished theologian is full of insight, humility and honesty. The Pope has called Jesus of Nazareth, ‘solely an expression of my personal search "for the face of the Lord". Everyone is free, then, to contradict me. I would only ask my readers for that initial willingness to sympathise, without which there can be no understanding.’ The Pope’s fundamental purpose in this book is to restore and renew ‘the interior friendship with Jesus … a figure that makes sense and feels right in historical terms.’ An informative and insightful portrait of the figure that emerges in the Gospels, it is also a deeply spiritual work that contends with the dramatic and provocative questions of faith. Important and valuable to those disillusioned by troubled times and as a remedy to modern historical scepticism, Jesus of Nazareth will engage and provoke thought in anyone who seeks a relationship with God.
