Complete picture emerges of the Holy Father on 7th anniversary of his installation

SAN FRANCISCO, April 23, 2012 – Joseph Ratzinger was installed as the leader of the Roman Catholic Church on April 24, 2005. As Pope Benedict XVI reaches the seventh anniversary of his elevation to the Papacy, three landmark books provide a complete picture of the Holy Father’s life and his teachings. Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, Light of the World and My Brother, the Pope are available from Ignatius Press.

Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, the second volume of his work on the life of Christ, became an instant bestseller. The final volume, which will cover Jesus’ childhood, is expected to be released later this year. In the foreword to Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week, Benedict XVI says that he aimed “to consider only the essential words and deeds of Jesus…. Even if there will always be details that remain open for discussion, I still hope that I have been granted an insight into the figure of our Lord that can be helpful to all readers who seek to encounter Jesus and to believe in Him.”

Light of the World, the book-length interview with the Holy Father conducted by German reporter Peter Seewald, is a 239-page book of candid, explicit and often surprising questions and answers. Never before has a pope answered a journalist’s wide-ranging, controversial and personal questions in a direct, one-on-one series of interviews.

My Brother, the Pope is a memoir from the Pontiff’s brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, as told to writer Michael Hesemann. Illustrated with many never-before-seen photos of the Ratzinger brothers and their family, Msgr. Ratzinger provides the only living witness to the early days and formation of brothers who were ordained as Catholic priests together on the same day in 1951 – after surviving Nazi Germany and World War II.
