Competing with Joseph Ratzinger?

Soon to be published by Liturgical Press: Jesus of Nazareth: What He Wanted, Who He Was by Gerhard Lohfink - the English translation of a book originally printed in German, I guess.

On the mailing from LitPress, there is the blurb: "If you read only one book about Jesus this year..."

with praise from Daniel J. Harrington, SJ, author of Jesus: A Historical Portrait

I can't find any reviews or critiques by trusted Catholic theologians.

Volume 3 of Joseph Ratzinger's work on Christ will be released in time for Christmas this year.

"They are the cardinals, the bishops, the priests whom Benedict XVI has wanted to add to the participants in the upcoming synod. Three of them are from Opus Dei. And another three from Communion and Liberation"

Let us pray to the Holy Spirit that those attending the synod will be enlightened. Surely He can overcome deficits in learning and experience?

A canonical treatment of the question, not a theological response to the ordination of [female] deaconesses in the East and explanations of the practice current in Orthodoxy.
