Philosopher and theologian Romano Guardini offers readers a picture of Jesus Christ through an attentive and obedient meditation on the living Word of God. In these spiritual commentaries on the life of Jesus, from the nativity to the Passion and Resurrection, Guardini explains that we must not attempt to shape Jesus according to our will, deciding how and what we want Our Lord to be, but that we must approach Him in the spirit of total conversion, and surrender ourselves completely to His divine will in obedience and faith. Introduction by Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI).

"This book is a masterpiece. It embodies the wealth of modern exegetical criticism opened by Protestant theologians like Karl Barth; the great traditions of 'devotio moderna'; French 17th century thought; the great insights of the Catholic mystics; and the matured speculation of scholasticism. But above all, it is an approach to Christ through the Gospels".--Commonwealth.
