  • Romano Guardini, widely recognised as the theological mentor of Joseph Ratzinger (Pope Benedict XVI), presents a series of meditations on the life of Christ that will remind readers of the pope's Jesus of Nazareth series. Delivered while Guardini was writ­ing his bestselling masterwork The Lord, these reflections inspire the reader to contemplate the presence that Jesus Christ manifested to the world.

    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.

    - 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

    A towering figure in twentieth-century Catholic theology, Romano Guardini has left us and the Church he ardently loved a lasting legacy of incomparable richness and depth, not the least of which being this little book.

    - Regis Martin, Professor of Theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville
