Vatican City, Nov 20, 2012 / 11:00 am
Pope Benedict's third and final book on Jesus' life has been launched, and this time he delves into Christ's childhood.
"The Pope's book refers especially to the infancy of Jesus in the context of a family and focuses on family tradition," said Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, at a Nov. 20 press conference.
"His words aren't just informative, they are also participative in the sense that they capture the reader and draw him in," he added.
The book, titled " Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives," will be available on Nov. 21 in bookshops and will be released in nine languages in 72 countries.
