I received the proofs for my book “Who is Jesus Christ? ” yesterday, and I was happy to see that Our Sunday Visitor obtained an imprimatur for the work. An imprimatur (which is Latin for “I’m the bishop and I say that you really need to buy this book if you are a Catholic and if you don’t I might excommunicate you, and if you are not Catholic, you should still buy this book” or something like that) is not required for such a book as mine, but I felt it would be nice to have to make clear that nothing in the book is contrary to the Catholic Faith.
When I asked Fr. Benedict Groeschel to write the Foreword to my book, he told me an interesting story. An old friend of his, who was a Cardinal, was asked to write the Foreword to a friend’s book and he did gladly. However, he didn’t actually read the whole book and it ended up containing heresy. The Cardinal, needless to say, was mortified. Fr. Benedict said that because of that incident he never writes a Foreword or endorsement for a book without reading it entirely. I told him that if he did happen to find any heresy in my book, please tell me and we’ll trash the book immediately! Fortunately, “Who is Jesus Christ? ” survived his close examination.
