The new book by Pope Benedict XVI, the third and final volume in his international bestselling Jesus of Nazareth series is a penetrating and theologically rich exploration of the infancy and early life of Jesus. It will be released in the U.S. and Canada on December 4, 2012 by Image Books, the Catholic-interest imprint of the Crown Publishing Group at Random House, Inc.

 

The first book in the series, a New York Times bestseller published in 2007, covered the period from Jesus’ baptism to his Transfiguration; the second, also a New York Times bestsller and issued in 2011, chronicled the passion and death of Jesus. Now, Pope Benedict focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus' infancy and childhood, sharing a compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and inciting readers to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure and the hope of the Christian faith.

Founded in 1954 with the mandate of providing quality religious titles to readers at an affordable price, Image Books is the only imprint from any trade publisher that is exclusively dedicated to Catholic topics. It has a uniquely rich history of publishing leading and classic Catholic-interest authors such as Pope Benedict XVI, Pope John Paul II, Mother Teresa, Thomas Merton, Henri Nouwen, Scott Hahn, Ronald Rolheiser, Mother Angelica, Raymond Arroyo, John L. Allen, and Cardinal Timothy Dolan.

Synopsis:

New York Times Bestseller! The momentous third and final volume in the Pope’s international bestselling Jesus of Nazareth series, detailing how the stories of Jesus’ infancy and childhood are as relevant today as they were two thousand years ago.

 

In 2007, Joseph Ratzinger published his first book as Pope Benedict XVI in order “to make known the figure and message of Jesus.” Now, the Pope focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ life as a child. The root of these stories is the experience of hope found in the birth of Jesus and the affirmations of surrender and service embodied in his parents, Joseph and Mary. This is a story of longing and seeking, as demonstrated by the Magi searching for the redemption offered by the birth of a new king. It is a story of sacrifice and trusting completely in the wisdom of God as seen in the faith of Simeon, the just and devout man of Jerusalem, when he is in the presence of the Christ child. Ultimately, Jesus’ life and message is a story for today, one that speaks to the restlessness of the human heart searching for the sole truth which alone leads to profound joy.

About the Author

JOSEPH RATZINGER, Pope Benedict XVI, born in 1927 in Germany, has been head of the Roman Catholic Church since April 2005. A prolific author, theologian and university professor, Ratzinger served as an "expert" at the Second Vatican Council, and was tapped in 1977 by Pope Paul VI to lead the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. In 1981, Pope John Paul II called him to Rome to head the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he served until his papal election.
