Archbishop Angelo Amato invited readers to delve into Benedict XVI's "Jesus of Nazareth," and there discover the wonder of the Face of Christ revealed by the Gospels.

The secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith said this Tuesday when speaking about the book at a summer course on the thought of the Pope, organized by the King Juan Carlos University Foundation.

The Salesian archbishop said the Holy Father presents "a living picture of Jesus" in a world where Christ's image is "often so distorted by thousands of different hypotheses that it becomes unrecognizable."

"Delve into the book and read it attentively and discover the wonder of the Face of Christ revealed in the Gospel," the archbishop urged.

I just started reading *Jesus of Nazareth* Tuesday night.

Angelo Amato...what a felicitous name.

The sections on The Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes, and Our Lord's Baptism have been particularly limn...astonishing, really.
