Editorial Reviews


This fine book exploring the Church's teaching on Our Lady will be a joy to Catholics and a revelation to Protestants. I highly recommend it for both groups. --Fr. Benedict Groeschel C.F.R.

Mark Shea has written the single most helpful book on the Sacred Tradition written in our generation. In other books he has illumined the reading of Scripture and the worship of the Eucharist. Now in Mary, Mother of the Son, he takes us to the summit of creation, the Ark of the New Covenant, the true tabernacle of the Lord. To read this book is to love Christ as a brother, by honoring the mother he shares with us (John 19:27). --Scott Hahn PHD

I found this book helpful because: 1. The content was very enlightening as the author laid down a good structure of support for the Immaculate Conception and Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary. 2. The author also has the skill to interject just enough humor, while presenting such serious material, to give the book a nice balance. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to know more about Church dogmas.

This book is such a great tool in understanding one of the many awesome facets of Catholicism. I have always had an admiration for Mary and feel she has given faith such an incredible boost of importance in our lives. We all could use more faith.

Format: Paperback
Mark Shea's book on Mary is a welcome addition to the theological reflection's on Our Lady. This book covers four of the most basic dogmatic teachings of the Church on Mary, namely, Mary Mother of God, Her Perpetual Virginity, Her Immaculate Conception, and Her Assumption. It gives some explanation to the meaning of these dogma's and of the history behind them.

What makes this book really special, however, is how he shows, in a very unique and valuable way, how these Marian dogma's are important for us today.

With a very valuable overview of modern secular philosophy, he shows that Marian Dogma, particularly the immaculate conception and assumption run full force against the secular message the we are purposeless accidents of nature meant to indulge our carnal nature. Rather, in Mary, we see what humans truly are created to be, and what is truly natural, namely, to be totally devoted to God.

In addition, there is much in marian dogma to refute the subtle Gnosticism in many Christian Communities.

Excellent book. Great book if you have the question "What difference does Mary Make?"
