Paperback: Jesus of Nazareth, by Pope Benedict XVI
Friday 18 April 2008
His Holiness is, as you might imagine, generally pro, though it can at times be a little hard to tell what he is on about. This is a typical example of Benedict's prose: "Dodd made the thematic orientation of the parables... the core of his exegesis, but rejected the German exegetes' imminent eschatology." (It may help to know that the Dodd under discussion is an English theologian and not the great comedian.) The lack of an index does not help with the exegesis of this text, though gourmets may be interested to learn that pages 29 to 37 and 150 to 157 are concerned with bread. Sadly, His Holiness does not include a recipe.
