Product Description

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).

Publisher's Description

The only true and unedited telling of the life of Christ—his life and times, in historical context, but not lacking the psychology behind his physical being and spirit. Unlike other books seeking to strip Jesus' story to reveal only the human being, Romano Guardini's The Lord gives the complete story of Jesus Christ—as man, Holy Ghost, and Creator. Pope Benedict XVI lauds Guardini's work as providing a full understanding of the Son of God, away from the prejudice that rationality engenders. Put long-held myths aside and discover the entire truth about God's only begotten Son.

Author Bio

Romano Guardini (1885-1968) was born in Italy but came as a small child to Germany, where he lived the rest of his life. His sermons and writings won him worldwide acclaim, and his admirers included Josef Pieper and Pope Benedict XVI. His many books have influenced generations and include The Lord, The End of the Modern World, The Spirit of the Liturgy, and The World and the Person. Guardini was the recipient of the German publishing industry's Peace Prize in 1952 and the Erasmus Prize in 1962. The Archdiocese of Munich and Freising opened the Cause for Canonization for Guardini in 2017.

Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger (1927-2022) was a Catholic priest and professor from Bavaria who became Pope Benedict XVI. He was a student of Romano Guardini and confidant of Pope John Paul II, participated in the Second Vatican Council, and would serve as Archbishop of Munich and Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith before his election to the papacy in 2005.
