2nd volume of Pope's book on Jesus due in early 2011

Catholic World News - July 29, 2010

The second volume of Pope Benedict’s 3-volume work on Jesus of Nazareth will be published in English by Ignatius Press early next year.

The first volume of the Pope’s work, published in 2009, covered the early public life of Jesus. The second volume covers Christ’s death and Resurrection. Pope Benedict has been working on the 3rd volume during his summer vacation this year.

Ignatius Press, which published many of the works of Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger before his election to the papacy, will produce the work in cooperation with the Vatican publisher, Libreria Editrice Vaticana, which now holds worldwide title to the Pontiff’s written work.

"We are eagerly awaiting Volume II because it will contain the Holy Father's reflections on the central mysteries of our faith: the Passion, Death, and Resurrection," said Father Joseph Fessio, SJ, the founder of Ignatius Press.

    I can't wait. I hope this volume is as good as the first one. I'm sure it will be.
