Read full description of the books Jes�s De Nazaret: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».
Read information about the authorPope Benedict XVI (Latin: Benedictus PP. XVI; Italian: Benedetto XVI; German: Benedikt XVI.; born Joseph Aloisius Ratzinger on 16 April 1927) was the 265th Pope, by virtue of his office of Bishop of Rome, the Sovereign of the Vatican City State and the head of the Catholic Church. He was elected on 19 April 2005 in a papal conclave, celebrated his Papal Inauguration Mass on 24 April 2005, and took possession of his cathedral, the Basilica of St. John Lateran, on 7 May 2005. A native of Bavaria, Pope Benedict XVI has both German and Vatican citizenship.
On 11 February 2013, Pope Benedict announced his resignation in a speech in Latin before the cardinals, citing a "lack of strength of mind and body" due to his advanced age. His resignation became effective on 28 February 2013. He is the first pope to resign since Pope Gregory XII in 1415, and the first to do so on his own initiative since Pope Celestine V in 1294. As pope emeritus, Benedict retains the style of His Holiness, and the title of Pope, and will continue to dress in the papal colour of white. He is expected to move into the newly renovated Mater Ecclesiae monastery for his retirement. He was succeeded by Pope Francis on 13 March 2013.
After a long career as an academic, serving as a professor of theology at various German universities (he formally remains a professor at the University of Regensburg), he was appointed Archbishop of Munich and Freising and cardinal by Pope Paul VI in 1977. In 1981, he settled in Rome when he became Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, one of the most important offices of the Roman Curia. At the time of his election as Pope, he was also Dean of the College of Cardinals, and as such the primus inter pares among the cardinals.
Like his predecessor Pope John Paul II, Benedict XVI is theologically conservative and his teaching and prolific writings defend traditional Catholic doctrine and values. During his papacy, Benedict XVI has advocated a return to fundamental Christian values to counter the increased secularisation of many developed countries. He views relativism's denial of objective truth, and the denial of moral truths in particular, as the central problem of the 21st century. He teaches the importance of both the Catholic Church and an understanding of God's redemptive love. He has reaffirmed the "importance of prayer in the face of the activism and the growing secularism of many Christians engaged in charitable work." Pope Benedict has also revived a number of traditions including elevating the Tridentine Mass to a more prominent position.
Pope Benedict is the founder and patron of the Ratzinger Foundation, a charitable organisation, which makes money from the sale of his books and essays in order to fund scholarships and bursaries for students across the world.
