What sets Pope Benedict's writing apart is his ability to weave the life of Jesus into historical context, one that aligns with non-Biblical history, to help the reader see how it all fits. This particular book covers the aspects of the Old Testament that prophecy the birth of Jesus as well as the events directly leading up to his birth and what we know of his youth. The two other books in the series - "From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration" and "Holy Week..." - complete the story.
This is an absolutely lovely little book - very clear, very insightful, easy to read her profound.
Don't miss this one!
Whether pointing out Mary's faith in accepting the Holy Spirit's blessing or the timing of Jesus presenting his message during the Roman Empire's greatest expansion, The Infancy Narratives pragmatically present the historical significance of Jesus as well as the spiritual and religious aspects of his life. All of this is wrapped in an enjoyable reading format.
An excellent example, typical of the whole book, is the context of how the wise men would have found Jesus: "In our story both elements can be seen in the first instance, the star leads the wise men as far as Judea. It is quite natural that their search for the newborn king of the Jews should take them to Israel's royal city and to the king's palace. That, surely, is were the future king must have been born. Then they need the direction provided by Israel's sacred Scriptures-the words of the living God-in order to find the way once and for all to David's true heir."
I would highly recommend this short book to anyone who would like to reflect on Jesus. The focus on Jesus and the faith of those around him is during a period of his life frequently given just brief attention. An especially relevant read for the Christmas season.
I have this and the other two volumes of his "Jesus of Nazareth" series.
Not only would I have enjoyed having him as a college Theology professor, but I sure would have liked to be a personal friend of his, not because he was the Bishop of Rome, but his books show him to be a very personable and practical man.
The books are written in an easy-to-read manner, yet packed with a tremendous amount of Theology. They are interesting. I think these books can be enjoyable reading for anyone, whether they have only a basic understanding or is someone with a graduate degree in Theological studies. Whether a person is Catholic or of some other faith, this is a great series on finding " the Jesus of the Gospels as the real, 'historical' Jesus in the strict sense of the word." They are a great source to build a deeper and richer relationship with God.
I have and will continue to recommend this "Jesus of Nazareth" three-book series.
