|Mary's title as "Ark of the Covenant"|
seems a fitting symbol for the
Feast of the Presentation.
Kindle edition of the book (even though I really prefer "real" books); I'll be reading it by the evening of the 21st. I'm delighted to have this on time for our Christmas concert trip! You can also preorder a real one. I'm sure delivery will be expeditious. Naturally, if you are near one of our Pauline centers, you can come in on release day and pick up a copy!
This book, even though it is the "prequel" to the other two Jesus of Nazareth books by Pope Benedict, is Volume 3.
Volume 1 covers the public ministry ("From the Baptism in the Jordan to the Transfiguration")
Volume 2 looks at Holy Week ("From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection")
