Product description

Review

A handsome new gift edition of the life of Christ, this is the first book authored by Pope Benedict XVI since his election to the papacy--with reproductions from many of the world's greatest painters.
"The distinguished art publisher Rizzoli International has just released a deluxe illustrated edition of Pope Benedict XVI's Jesus of Nazareth (hardcover, $60). It contains over 120 full-color plates, reproductions of classical depictions of Jesus by a host of famous artists, including Caravaggio, Gaugin and Matisse."
America magazine
"Pope Benedict XVI's book about Jesus, the man, is back and illuminated! With its release coinciding with the holiday season, Jesus of Nazareth: The Illustrated Edition is a beautifully put together book."
San Francisco Book Review

About the Author

Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger was elected Pope Benedict XVI on April 19, 2005, 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." Mons. Gianfranco Ravasi is the current President of the Pontifical Council for Culture.
