Editorial Reviews

Review

<DIV>"The Marian Option offers a brilliant treatment on why the Virgin Mary the mother of Jesus and our spiritual mother must be at the heart of any Christian effort to renew society. Providing powerful historical witnesses, concrete examples, and practical cultural remedies, Carrie Gress masterfully describes how in ages past it was only through the maternal intercession of the Queen of Heaven that fervent Catholic resurgences took place, and why our modern age must learn from this and once again turn to Mary. This book is compelling and convincing!"

--Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, Author, Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon

 </DIV>

<DIV>"This book is provocative in its simplicity. Looking closely at the recent conversations surrounding the so-called 'Benedict Option,' Carrie Gress uncovers something more fundamental to living a full, Christian life: the Marian Option. The call to personal holiness - given by Christ Himself - has no better exemplar over the centuries than our own Mother, Mary. St. Benedict would agree! And so would, I strongly suspect, those attracted to the Benedict Option. Marian devotion, lived through a deep devotion to Our Lady and a life of simple holiness changes the world, because it changes us."

--Chris Stefanick, Reallifecatholic.com</DIV>
