Pope’s new book on Jesus has family focus

Grab a copy of the Holy Father’s new book, titled “ Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives”.   This is available starting today, November 21, in 72 countries and it has also been released in nine languages.  

Pope Benedict’s third and final book on Jesus’ life has been launched, and this time he delves into Christ’s childhood.

“The Pope’s book refers especially to the infancy of Jesus in the context of a family and focuses on family tradition,” said Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi,  president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, at a November 20 press conference.

The book, “ Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives”, focuses particularly on how Christ’s infancy is relevant today and on the importance of the family.

The book is the Pope’s third and final volume in his “Jesus of Nazareth” series. It examines the details and context of Jesus’ birth found in the Gospels, particularly focusing on his parents, the magi and Simeon.

Pope Benedict’s first book in the series was published in 2007. That work was dedicated to reflecting on the period from Jesus’ baptism to his transfiguration. His second book, released in 2011, detailed the passion and death of Christ.
