Editorial Reviews

Review

This collection of 12 essays has a broad agenda covering sexuality, femininity, pneumatology, eschatology, histiry and hermeneuicss in the Marian Tradition.
Schaberg's influential work merits a place in a collection such as this; and the esssay by John Dominic Crossan, "Virgin Mother or Bastard Child?", is an interesting critical response.
For those with an interest in the biblical Mary, and in various feminist challenges to Mary's status in the Catholic tradtion, this is an informative book.
(Dr Tina Beattie Church Times)

"Together the essays provide a comprehensive analysis of Mary in history, Scripture, the Protoevangelium of James, traditional Mariology, and later interpretation. Each is replete with insights and thought-provoking ideas, and the collection as a whole provides a fascinating yet highly readable discussion of the place and significance of Mary in Christian thought."

Format: Hardcover
I am looking for serious books about Mariology. But the ones that seem good are all pretty high priced. (Just saw one for $70.)Academia is so self indulgent. No wonder none of the liberating, exciting material one reads in school trickles down to the congregations. The books are too high priced and the Amazon descriptions are filled with six syllable words. I have a master of divinity degree and I don't know what's in this book based on the description. Nothing here is going to reach the writers, but I'll vent anyway. If a book falls in the forest, does it make any noise? What's the point of this book if no one reads it? Nothing. Keep your noses in the air, that's right. (Aside to Dierdre Good: Hey, we want our prostitute back! None of this apostle to the apostles stuff! This is one reason why...)
