Just published: 'Livre de l’enfance de Notre-Seigneur Jésus-Christ' by Jacques Rhétoré.
From the pen of Father Jacques Rhétoré (1841–1921) – the brilliant master of didactic Sureth (Eastern Assyrian) verse – an irrisistible retelling of the much beloved apocryphal stories and legends about the childhood life and miracles of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In his introduction, the then Chaldean Catholic Patriarch of Babylon, Yousef VI Emmanuel II Thomas (†1947), praises Rhetoré’s work as characterized by a wonderfully artistic and highly enjoyable style and even calls him a worthy modern successor of the great Mar Afrem (†373).
The characteristically precise and profound language of Rhétoré, paired with his masterful verse and philosophical depth in the retelling of the Infancy Gospels, offers a literarily very satisfiying and at the same time highly spiritually nourishing reading experience, as pointed out by the Patriarch.
Note that this book is in the Eastern Assyrian language.
