VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Two million copies of Pope Benedict XVI's book, "Jesus of Nazareth," have been sold worldwide.
The first volume of the book was published in German, Polish and Italian in mid-April, and in English in May followed by dozens of other translations.
The book, Pope Benedict's first as pope, highlights what the Bible says about Jesus, what the moral implications of his teachings are and how reading the Scriptures can lead to a real relationship with Jesus.
The 400-page book has been the number one book on the Catholic Best-Sellers List for the past three months, according to the Catholic Book Publishers Association. It shot to the top slot starting with the association's August list, which reflected June sales.
