NEW YORK, MARCH 28, 2011 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI’s newest book, released March 10, has moved up to the No. 5 spot on the April 3 New York Times bestseller list in the hardcover nonfiction category.
The Pope’s book, “Jesus of Nazareth Part II: Holy Week — From the Entrance into Jerusalem to the Resurrection” (Ignatius Press), also made the best seller lists published by The Wall Street Journal and “Publisher’s Weekly.”
“It’s great to see Jesus of Nazareth: Holy Week move toward No. 1 on the New York Times bestseller list,” said Ignatius Press President Mark Brumley. “This book presents Jesus in a powerful way, so we’re excited that so many people are getting the book and getting to know Jesus Christ better through it.
“During Lent, this is especially important for believers. But it’s also important for nonbelievers and seekers to encounter the real Jesus.”
