This illustrated edition of the bold, momentous book written by Pope Benedict XVI is beautifully adorned with reproductions of classic works by a veritable pantheon of classic painters-from Tiepolo to Chagall. Begun before his election to the papacy, the book contains masterfully cogent and accessible essays on the life of Jesus, including his baptism, his temptation in the desert, the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord's Prayer, the disciples, the parables, the principal images of John's Gospel, Peter's confession and Jesus's Transfiguration, and Jesus's two self-descriptions, "Son of Man" and "Son." Pope Benedict XVI responds to the revisionist historical literature that makes Jesus a man of his time and place, and he discusses recent archaeological, historical, anthropological, and sociological research. As sensitive as it is erudite and brilliant, this edition is lavishly illustrated with handsome reproductions of classical depictions of Jesus by a roster of eminent artists, including Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Veronese, Bellini, Kandinsky, Gauguin, Matisse, and many others.

MEDIA REVIEWS
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

“Thorough and inspiring”

I am not a catholic but read this book simply as a Christian account of a specific period in Jesus' ministry. What I especially enjoyed was the attempt to get at the real Jesus through the words of the Gospel -... More

“Very Surprised”

I was expecting this to be very typically, well, catholic. This is fantastic theology, based very much on logical interperatation of scripture and church tradition is very minimal. Shows ratzinger to be a good scholar... More
