Pope’s new book

Benedict XVI’s book on Jesus of Nazareth will be presented to the public on Friday, April 13. The volume will be on sale in bookshops on Monday, April 16, in its Italian, German and Polish editions.

In the Preface, the Pope writes that this work, “is not a magisterial act, but solely an expression of my personal search for the face of the Lord. Therefore, all are free to contradict me.”

He added: “Because I do not know how much time I am left and how much strength I will be given, now I have decided to publish the first 10 chapters as a first part of my book, which go from the Baptism in the Jordan to the confession of Peter and the Transfiguration.”

There are plans for nine other volumes to be published later.
