Jesus Christ is the most important person who ever set foot on planet earth because he was and is God Almighty in human flesh. He came from heaven into this world of suffering and death to save all mankind from sin and the sad consequences of sin – ignorance of God, suffering and death. He is the only one who could possibly reconcile man with God, since as God all his actions have infinite merit. (From the Goodreads Website)

The  doctrine contained in this handbook is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the teaching of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Angelic Doctor and prince of theologians. The book can profitably be used as a companion to Pope Benedict XVI’s Jesus of Nazareth because it explains the Church’s official doctrine about Jesus that is alluded to in the Pope’s book which is a scriptural presentation.
