The second volume of the Holy Father’s work Jesus of Nazareth will be released for Lent 2011, with a date of 15 March.
This volume will focus on the period the Lord’s life from the entrance into Jerusalem to His resurrection.

I found, in the first volume, the Holy Father’s exposition of the problems with an unbalanced “historical-critical” approach to Scriptures masterful and invaluable. Also, he has a succinct explanation of how we are to understand “inspiration” and Scripture. His reflections on the temptations of the Lord was rich.
I suggest that these would be good gifts to priests, useful for their preaching. Both volumes would be useful for your Lenten reflections.
Lent is coming, you know. So is the Pope’s new book.
