The Pope's new book (won't be out until after Ash Wednesday) is being released, it seems, in tantalizing tidbits. I got an e-mail today tipping me off to a well-connected readers' blog post from which I was able to find those pre-released tidbits for myself (and for you, dear Reader). The trouble is, reading those paragraphs is stirring up my appetite for a book that I won't be able to, um, devour, for over a week! (That is just torture!)
Torturous or not, you really should read that post for what the Holy Father says about some of the most controversial passages in all of Scripture related to the death of Jesus. We all need to assimilate his wisdom and balance, and especially his focus on the Lord.
