Who better to write a book about the proclaimed Son of God than the leader of His largest organized group of followers, the Catholic Church? And who could be a more intimidating author of such a tome? Listeners to Don Leslie's presentation of the English translation find any trepidations soon quelled. Leslie reads the Pontiff's work as if he were an educated and caring priest delivering a homily to a beloved congregation. Pope Benedict refrains from obscure theological philosophy in favor of a clear examination of both biblical and scholarly writings on Christ. Together, Leslie's sonorous yet personable tones and the Pope's scholarly yet conversational writing style create an inviting study. R.L.L. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 07]
