January 2018: Jesus of Nazareth

Located in the Parish Library: Spirituality 218

Jesus of Nazareth by Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

In this first book written as a Pope, Benedict XVI shares his “personal search for the face of the Lord”: a portrait of Jesus as discovered in the Synoptic Gospels and John’s Gospel. He compels us to encounter Him too, face to face.

This volume one goes from the Baptism of the Lord to the Transfiguration. It beautifully examines and explains the true meaning of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus, why He was tempted, the Beatitudes, the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord’s Prayer.

A perfect book to start a new liturgical year getting to know Jesus a little better.
