In this bold, momentous work, the Pope––in his first book written as Benedict XVI––seeks to salvage the person of Jesus from recent “popular” depictions and to restore Jesus’ true identity as discovered in the Gospels. 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 incites us to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure of the Christian faith.
From Jesus of Nazareth: “. . . the great question that will be with us throughout this entire book: But what has Jesus really brought, then, if he has not brought world peace, universal prosperity, and a better world? What has he brought? The answer is very simple: God. He has brought God! He has brought the God who once gradually unveiled his countenance first to Abraham, then to Moses and the prophets, and then in the wisdom literature–the God who showed 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, of Isaac, and of Jacob, the true God, whom he has brought to the peoples of the earth. 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 love.”
Ralph E. Molyneux4 Stars Out Of 5April 14, 2009Ralph E. MolyneuxTruly enjoyable. Pope Benedict XVI is refreshingly conservative. The foundations of most of his argumentation in this book is an attempt to understand the cultural milieu of Jesus Christ by an honest reconstruction of the intention of the authors of the NT text. While he does embrace many classic and predictable Augustinian interpretations of the church, Israel, and eschatology, he does acknowledge the roots of his hermeneutic in Greek religious literature. However, his goal of substantiating the historical accuracy of the New Testament prevails every section of this book. While my dispensationalist/protestant roots prevent me from agreeing with all his conclusions, it is most refreshing to have a Catholic theologian of his caliber speak of the New Testament while assuming its validity and historicity. I now fully understand the reticence my liberal Catholic brothers and sisters had when he was appointed as pope. I'd recommend this for anyone wanting to read of Christ from both a conservative historical/critical and devotional perspective.
John Waldren5 Stars Out Of 5August 29, 2007John WaldrenThis book was written by a Catholic Cardinal of the Church who became Pope. It is actually Part I & Part II will be published later. However, everyone can come to know Jesus thru this book as it is historically based, and no matter what your faith, one's belief in Jesus is what matters here. For Catholics, it should definitely deepen your love for Jesus. For other Christians, if it does not deepen your faith & love of Jesus, you are missing something. Cardinal Ratzinger uses the Old & New Testements to portray Jesus in a new light for me, and I would hope, for all. I have rated it 5 stars.
