Through his brilliance as a theologian and his personal conviction as a believer, the Pope shares a rich, compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and invites us to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure of the Christian faith.</p> <p> From <i>Jesus of Nazareth</i>: &ldquo;the great question that will be with us throughout this entire book: What did Jesus actually bring, if not world peace, universal prosperity, and a better world? What has he brought?</p> <p> The answer is very simple: God. He has brought God! He has brought the God who formerly unveiled his countenance gradually first to Abraham, then to Moses and the Prophets, and then in the Wisdom Literature&mdash;the God who revealed his face only in Israel, even though he was also honored among the pagans in various shadowy guises. It is this God, the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, the true God, whom he has brought to the peoples of the earth.</p> <p> He has brought God, and now we know his face, now we can call upon him. Now we know the path that we human beings have to take in this world. Jesus has brought God and with God the truth about where we are going and where we come from: faith, hope, and <span data-scayt_word="love.”" data-scaytid="2">love.&rdquo;</span></p> <br /> 21899 Jesus-of-Nazareth-soft-cover18487lg.jpg Doubleday 1 217 Paperback 415 0 2008 N/A 1 18487 Jesus-of-Nazareth-soft-cover18487sm.jpg From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration Jesus of Nazareth [empty string] 16.95 16.95 0

The 400-page tome is part one of a two-volume series looking at the person of Jesus; the second volume, which is still in the works, will cover the life of Jesus after the transfiguration.<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->&nbsp;<!--[endif]--><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal">This first book is a scholarly work, not at all an easy read. (A <a target="_blank" href="http://www.aquinasandmore.com/title/Jesus-of-Nazareth-Study-Guide---Soft-Cover/SKU/18488">study guide </a>is available and probably a good idea.) Each sentence, even each word, is packed with substance. There are discussions of the methodology behind Benedict&rsquo;s exegesis, including the merits and limitations of the historical-critical method that only partly directs his interpretations. For every conclusion Benedict draws, he provides ample arguments, citing history, nuances in language, and previous commentaries on Jesus. When it helps him make his case, he thoughtfully dissects points made by fellow exegetes about the character of Jesus.<!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->&nbsp;<!--[endif]--><o:p></o:p></p> <p class="MsoNormal">All in all, the book is an intense look into the person of Jesus through an examination of the Gospels, always remembering that Jesus is defined by his relationship to the Father. The book begins with the baptism of the Lord; from there Pope Benedict takes us through the temptations of Jesus, the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, the Sermon on the Mount (including a study of the Beatitudes), the Lord&rsquo;s Prayer, the disciples, the parables, the images of John&rsquo;s gospel, and the transfiguration. The book closes with a look at the identity of Jesus as reflected in the titles ascribed to him, such as &ldquo;Messiah&rdquo; and &ldquo;Son of God,&rdquo; and in Jesus&rsquo; descriptions of Himself in the Gospels.</p> <p class="MsoNormal"><!--[if !supportEmptyParas]-->&nbsp;<em>Jesus of Nazareth </em>has been translated from German and is publishes by Ignatius Press.</p> <p class="MsoNormal">You can purchase this book <a target="_blank" href="http://www.aquinasandmore.com/title/Jesus-of-Nazareth-soft-cover---Soft-Cover/SKU/18487">here</a>.</p> 504 [empty string]
