The Pope is an Author

Image Books, an imprint of Crown Publishing has just announced they will be printing Pope Benedict XVI’s novel. The book will highlight the early life of Jesus, completing Joseph Ratzinger’s (the Pope’s given name) Jesus of Nazareth trilogy. The book is expected to be released on December 4th to be available during the Christmas Season.

From the publishers press release: “The first book in the series, a New York Times bestseller published in 2007, covered the period from Jesus’ baptism to his Transfiguration; the second, also a New York Times bestseller and issued in 2011, chronicled the passion and death of Jesus. Now, Pope Benedict focuses exclusively on the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ infancy and childhood, sharing a compelling, flesh-and-blood portrait of Jesus and inciting readers to encounter, face-to-face, the central figure and the hope of the Christian faith.”
