Was I ever wrong. I’ve come to recognize Benedict as a thoughtful, humble man who loves Christ and the Church and teaches from that center. That is what you will find in this book. At least I did. Botnkamm read this book for our Catholic parish book club and I think the overwhelming opinion was surprise and pleasure at what we found here. What truth is released when the focus is Trinitarian and Christ-centered. When reading this book, I sensed that Benedict uses the biblical text to share the Truth, the whole Truth and nothing but the Truth.


In that, he invites us to encounter Christ. It was a pleasure to experience the freedom that comes from centering on Christ and the Trinitarian God. The Truth truly does set you free John 8: As a Jewish man, I was looking for an intelligent yet passionate declaration from a Christian, on gujther person of Jesus.

And the Pope does. The Pope elucidates his gunhher endeavor to find the ‘essence’ of a Man many believe encapsulates the fulfillment of divinity. A Man whose life perpetually inspires and illuminates many through the ages. This book presents a ‘Gospel-dissection’ of Jesus’ words and actions. What He was thinking, and most of all, what drove ‘God’ to pour Himself into the restrictive, suffocating gunher body of a human being. I am not sure the Pope makes bornksmm case for Jesus’ divinity.

But to deny that the Jesus of the Gospels was not a spectacularly unique man would be to deny the heights to which a man can attain, when God is made the focus and locus of one’s life. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase.

This book contains many insights into Holy Scripture that I had neither heard or thought of. The clarity and simplicity in which this book undertakes its purpose is also deep, yet accessible. The deep understanding and experience of the author is evident from reading it. I suggest this book for any honest persons who are willing to learn and especially those who are wanting to have a deep enough view of true Christian faith presented for honest intellectual analysis.

I heard that when he was elected to the Papacy, that many saw it as electing the most intelligent man in the room. I now believe that it is likely. His discourse is unparalleled. But beware of assuming you can breeze through the book. Cardinal Ratzinger’s philosophy is highly complex, and his diction is immensely difficult.

Jesus of Nazareth – Günther Bornkamm – Google Books

So a clear understanding of the phenomenal truth of his description of Jesus takes some real careful thinking and meditation. Timothy Haugh Top Contributor: Benedict is a master theologian and Francis is a pastor. It plays to his theological wheelhouse and Benedict hits a home run. This particular volume follows Jesus from his baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration.


It is filled with historical information, views from his wide reading, and his own theological insight.

There is some wonderful stuff here. Not that I found everything Benedict explained convincing. I found his chapter on the Gospel of John, while excellent in describing its symbols and themes, a bit hard to trust when he tries to convince us of an earlier composition date and a lower Christology that seems apparent in the text.

And yet, he is very convincing when he describes why he thinks that the gospel and the letters of John comes from a tradition that has links to an actual apostle. In fact, this is an excellent book. Bornkammm one feels about Benedict as a pope, this book is an engaging account of his thinking about Christ.

As such, it is a valuable resource for anyone on their own gunter for truth. See all reviews.
