VATICAN CITY (AP) -- The Vatican says Pope Benedict has completed the third installment of his planned trilogy on the life of Christ. The publication date will be announced after "Jesus of Nazareth" is translated into various languages from Benedict's original German.
The announcement Thursday says the third volume is dedicated to accounts of Christ's infancy. Part I was published in 2007. Previous installments have blended theology and history while denouncing such contemporary issues as religiously motivated violence.
