Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives by Pope Benedict XVI.

 
 
Pope Benedict XVI published his first book in 2007 ‘to make known the figure and message of Jesus’. This is the third and final volume in the best selling Jesus of Nazareth series.

Synopsis:

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.
