En este original y oportuno libro —el primero que escribe desde su elección como papa—, Benedicto XVI rescata la figura de Jesús de recientes descripciones «populares» y restaura la verdadera identidad de Jesús que nos presentan los Evangelios. El papa, con su excepcional lucidez como teólogo y su convicción personal como creyente, nos presenta un retrato de Jesús impactante y veraz, y nos invita a encontrarnos cara a cara con la figura principal de la fe cristiana.

De Jesús de Nazaret: «La gran pregunta que nos acompañará a lo largo de todo este libro: ¿qué ha traído Jesús realmente, si no ha traído la paz al mundo, el bienestar para todos, un mundo mejor? ¿Qué ha traído?
La respuesta es muy sencilla: a Dios. Ha traído a Dios. Aquel Dios cuyo rostro se había ido revelando primero poco a poco, desde Abraham hasta la literatura sapiencial, pasando por Moisés y los Profetas; el Dios que sólo había mostrado su rostro en Israel y que, si bien entre muchas sombras, había sido honrado en el mundo de los pueblos; ese Dios, el Dios de Abraham, Isaac y Jacob, el Dios verdadero, Él lo ha traído a los pueblos de la tierra.
Ha traído a Dios: ahora conocemos su rostro, ahora podemos invocarlo. Ahora conocemos el camino que debemos seguir como hombres en este mundo. Jesús ha traído a Dios y, con Él, la verdad sobre nuestro origen y nuestro destino; la fe, la esperanza y el amor».

Very readable and highly recommendable, incorporating scholarly precision with down-to-earth Christian faith. A pleasure and a blessing to read! Thank God for biblical scholars and Churchmen like Benedikt XVI. It reminds me a lot of the Roman Catholic, who in Worms judged: "Then the Lutherans are in the Bible and we are outside." Well, I think Pope Benedikt XVI is doing his fair share of getting RC right back into the Holy Bible and the Holy Bible into RC. If you are looking for a good present for Thanksgiving or Christmas - here is a good choice!more
An excellent answer by the most prominent figure in Christendom to the proponents of the historical-critical method and their false assumptions. Powerful.more
Marvelous! The insights of the Holy Father about who Jesus Christ is, against what the world says He is or should be are so sincere, and timeless. He has an amazing way of making difficult theological concepts understandable... and just making you think.more
As a Roman Catholic, the content of this book is perfect. It was written to seemingly "set the record straight" due to so many interpretations of Jesus's life and his teachings in modern literature. The book studies the authenticity of the Gospels and analyzes major parables and events (Sermon on the Mount, the meaning of the "Our Father" etc).While not disputing any of the content of the book, I offer a warning to those who may wish to read it. This is not a book for beginners. It's not even a book for "mid-levels". The book mostly offers an advanced look at the life and teachings of Jesus taking for granted that the reader understands many movements with and against the Roman Catholic understanding. Many proper names and movements over the past 2000 years are referenced by name without any further elaboration on their background, assuming the reader already knows or will pursue knowledge. When Pope Benedict XVI was elected, he was dubbed "the thinking man's pope" to contrast his sytle to that of John Paul II who was able to appreciate the vernacular. Pope John Paul II was right for his time as he could work with the television media and understood the importance of sound bites. Pope Benedict XIV is perfect for his time as the prevalence of the internet facilitates the ease of communication, reading and research. This book reflects that style by offering a very complex look at the life and teachings of Jesus and his critics over the past 2000 years.I will read this again as I'm sure I will get something out of it every time I read it.more
I'm very impressed with the Pope right now. Jesus of Nazareth is a very thoughtful and elegant exegesis of the Gospels, in search of the reconciliation of the historical Jesus with the Christ Jesus. Benedict works chronologically through Jesus' life, beginning with his baptism and working through the Transfiguration. While he refers to a variety of scholars for historical contexts and interpretations, often he prefers to keep the exegesis insulated - he refers back to other parts of the Bible, the Torah or the prophets for example, to interpret the Gospel. It's a very sophisticated and often innovative look at who exactly Jesus wasmore
Pope Benedict pens a biography of the flesh-and-blood Jesus as revealed in the Gospels. The pope shares his understanding of Jesus of Nazareth as the central figure of Christianity, who brough God to Earth along with faith, hope and love.more
