Pope has completed 2nd volume of 'Jesus of Nazareth'

Catholic World News - May 10, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI has completed the 2nd volume of his work, Jesus of Nazareth, the Vatican press office has announced.

The completed manuscript of the new book, which focuses on the Passion and Resurrection, has been sent to the publishers. The Vatican publishing house will be responsible for coordinating translations from the German original and making arrangements for publication in different countries. That process is likely to take several months.

The Vatican hopes to make the book available in several languages simultaneously, according to the May 10 announcement. Because translations and editing proceed slowly, the actual appearance of the book is probably several months away.

In April, the American Jewish scholar Jacob Neusner reported that Pope Benedict had told him the coming volume would be his last book.
