Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

En este original y oportuno libro —el primero que escribe desde su elección como papa—, Benedicto XVI rescata la figura de Jesús de recientes descripciones «populares» y restaura la verdadera identidad de Jesús que nos presentan los Evangelios. El papa, con su excepcional lucidez como teólogo y su convicción personal como creyente, nos presenta un retrato de Jesús impactante y veraz, y nos invita a encontrarnos cara a cara con la figura principal de la fe cristiana.

De Jesús de Nazaret: «La gran pregunta que nos acompañará a lo largo de todo este libro: ¿qué ha traído Jesús realmente, si no ha traído la paz al mundo, el bienestar para todos, un mundo mejor? ¿Qué ha traído?

La respuesta es muy sencilla: a Dios. Ha traído a Dios. Aquel Dios cuyo rostro se había ido revelando primero poco a poco, desde Abraham hasta la literatura sapiencial, pasando por Moisés y los Profetas; el Dios que sólo había mostrado su rostro en Israel y que, si bien entre muchas sombras, había sido honrado en el mundo de los pueblos; ese Dios, el Dios de Abraham, Isaac y Jacob, el Dios verdadero, Él lo ha traído a los pueblos de la tierra.

Ha traído a Dios: ahora conocemos su rostro, ahora podemos invocarlo. Ahora conocemos el camino que debemos seguir como hombres en este mundo. Jesús ha traído a Dios y, con Él, la verdad sobre nuestro origen y nuestro destino; la fe, la esperanza y el amor».

Synopsis:

When he was elected Pope Benedict XVI in April 2005, Joseph Ratzinger became the most accomplished theologian to ascent to the Papacy in several hundred years. Over the prior 50 years of his life he had authored scores of theological works and even his critics have acknowledged his erudition and superior intellect. The Pope maintains that while the scholarship of the last century that has focused on the "historical" Jesus has offered many insights, it has also diverged in ways that were misinformed or tainted by preconceptions. He resolutely maintains that reason and faith are not contradictory: that gospels can be trusted. The author's purpose in this book is to restore and discover anew "the interior friendship with Jesus, which is really the point of the whole business." and he ways, "I believe that this Jesus - the Jesus of gospels - actually turns out to be a figure that makes sense and feels right in historical term."

About the Author

On April 19, 2005, CARDINAL JOSEPH RATZINGER was elected POPE BENEDICT XVI and became the 264th successor to Peter as the "Vicar of Jesus Christ." He may well be the most accomplished theologian to be elected Pope in modern times. Beginning in 1981 he spent over 20 years as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, a role often depicted as the “defender of the faith.” Cardinal Ratzinger was also President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the Preparatory Commission that codified the new Catechism of the Catholic Church, published in 1994.
