Overview

Romano Guardini, widely recognized as the theological mentor of Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), and the author of The Lord, offers a series of meditations on the life of Christ in a similar vein to the Pope's Jesus of Nazareth series.

This series of illuminating sermons on the life of Christ was delivered to students at Berlin University, where Romano Guardini (1885-1968) taught. He was a mentor to such prominent theologians as Hans Urs von Balthasar and Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI) and in this book, Guardini's teaching style comes truly alive. Delivered while writing his bestselling masterwork The Lord, these reflections inspire the reader to contemplate the presence that Jesus Christ manifested to the world. Guardini masterfully carries the reader beyond the stories and events of scripture to focus on the person of Jesus Christ. These meditations are accessible and clear, but maintain the theological depth found in Guardini's seminal work.

"We tend to stand at a distance when encountering a mystery. In Jesus Christus, Romano Guardini invites us to enter into the mystery of Christ and experience the mysteries of God that are forever challenging us." —Rev. Eugene F. Hemrick, Director, National Institute for the Renewal of the Priesthood

"One of Guardini's favorite expressions was, 'that which is truly real will arise from the rich, varied expansiveness of our existence, of our being fully Christian, and will lead us to the One who is truly real.' As we are taught by Guardini, the essence of Christianity is not an idea, not a system of thought, not a plan of action. The essence of Christianity is a Person: Jesus Christ himself. That which is essential is the One who is essential. To become truly real means to come to know Jesus Christ and to learn from him what it means to be human." —Pope Benedict XVI

"The explicit goal of Guardini's meditations in Jesus Christus is to lead each reader to a greater knowledge of and union with the Lord. At the same time, the book's implicit goal is each reader's maturation into the person whom God envisions." —Robert Krieg, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame
