More About the Author

Born in 1927 in Germany as Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI has been head of the Roman Catholic Church since April 2005. A prolific author, theologian and university professor, Ratzinger served as an "expert" at the Second Vatican Council, and was tapped in 1977 by Pope Paul VI to lead the German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising. In 1981, Pope John Paul II called him to Rome to head the Vatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he served until his papal election.

The first page of this book alone blew me away.
Mr. Raymond Depta
MARIA turns out to be more of a pictorial than a book per se, but nonetheless, it is a great collectors item and the content is exquisitely simple and eloquent.
M. Stopka
I highly recommend this as a gift for all those who love the Blessed Mother.

The first page of this book alone blew me away. It is the most beautiful, yet easy to understand, piece written about Mary I have ever encountered. Benedict taks a complicated subject like Mary and explains her in a straightforward way that reaches to our heart. I teach theology to teenagers and I work with both Catholics and non-catholics in study groups. I have shared passages with each group and all thought the passages were beautiful. I highly recommend.

When I received this book, I was surprised and even a bit disappointed at first. I was hoping it would contain more content. MARIA turns out to be more of a pictorial than a book per se, but nonetheless, it is a great collectors item and the content is exquisitely simple and eloquent. Each page is printed in 4-color and has a full color hard-cover in addition to the full color book cover. It is actually a very expensive book to print - certainly a great value for the price. To sum it up, the book is beautifully delicate and emits a devout love for our Blessed Mother Mary.

Many of the pictures of the madonnas i have never seen before. Also about in the middle of the book a truly great picture of Pope Benedict the 16th. An A+ book all the way .

This book is really worth purchasing. Elegantly compiled with wonderfully crisp clear pictures of the blessed Mother Mary with infant Jesus. The text compliments the pictures and reading is relatively short and simple. I consider this a great item added to my personal "spiritual books" collection.

As a Catholic, I am once again proud to call Pope Benedict our(not just mine) German shepard. This wonderful theologian reminds us through the Gospels and Art in paintings and places of adoration of who and how important Mary is to us. Why God picked her and how she was instrumental with the Apostels in the formation of our comunion. His visit to the Marien shrine in the hills above Ephesus,Turkey (Mary's house), brought home to my wife and I our visit to the site three years ago. We knew it was a special place. But now I know why. And more importantly why Mary is our Mother."Women behold your son."
