Catholic News Agency reports that Pope Benedict XVI's third and final book on Jesus's life has been launched by the Vatican Publishing House.

"The Pope's book refers especially to the infancy of Jesus in the context of a family and focuses on family tradition," said Cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, at a Nov. 20 press conference.

The book, titled Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives, is the Pope's third and final volume in his "Jesus of Nazareth" series. It examines the details and context of Jesus's birth found in the Gospels, particularly focusing on his parents, the Magi, and Simeon.
