Meet Mary

$13.95

Who do you say that she is? She's a simple peasant girl they call Queen of Heaven. She's the Lord's humble servant, yet an icon of womanly strength. She's ever-virgin and mother of all; lowly and exalted; filled with grace and font of grace. Sinners fly to her, but an angel bowed. She's Mary, the mother of Jesus. She's the most recognized woman in history ... and the most misunderstood.

Non-Christians paint her as an earth goddess or proto-feminist. Skeptics say she's a fictional projection of male psychological needs. And many protestants grudgingly acknowledge that someone had to bear the Savior, but they otherwise regard Mary as an ordinary, sinful woman.

Even if you're a Catholic who grew up with a statue of Mary next to your bed, you probably don't understand her as well as you think -- or should. Do you know the Church's five essential Marian doctrines, and how they're rooted in Scripture and Sacred Tradition? Are you able to explain to others the difference between the Immaculate Conception and the Virgin Birth? Or to share the messages and secrets of Mary's most famous apparitions?

Meet Mary, the new book from renowned Marian expert Mark Miravalle, will tell you all that and more. In it you will learn the faithful truth about this woman of contradictions: everything the Bible says about her, what the early Christians believed, and each of the key teachings the Church has proclaimed about her for 2,000 years. Even more important -- for Mary herself desires to be known intimately, not academically -- you'll learn how to enter into a personal relationship with her. You'll come to regard her not as a distant and unapproachable figure in the heavens, but as a real friend and a mother.

Most of all, you'll become a better disciple of Jesus. For the Son commands us to imitate Him in all things -- including perfect love of His mother. Published by Sophia.
