September 18, 2012 Book Club

Author: Pope Benedict XVI
Synopsis: Working from Scripture, the Church Fathers and contemporary scholarship, Benedict XVI deftly brings together the historical and theological dimensions of the gospel portraits of Jesus. This is a splendid, penetrating study of the central figure of Christian faith; a learned and spiritual illumination not only of who Jesus was, but who he is for us today. (Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Denver)
