Mary. Who is this hidden and humble woman? Her yes to God’s plan changed the world forever. Yet for many, this quiet Mother remains a controversial and ambiguous figure. Catholic for a Reason II: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mother of God explores the mystery of Mary, the Mother of God, through the personal study and reflection of nine well known Catholics: Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, Kimberly Hahn, Edward Sri, Curtis Mitch, Sean Innerst, and Leon Suprenant. Learn why the Catholic Church teaches that Mary was immaculately conceived, remained always a virgin, and was assumed body and soul into heaven. You’ll understand how Mary is the fulfillment of Old Testament images. Most of all, you’ll discover what it means to be a child of Mary in the Church.
This revised and expanded edition includes a chapter on the Luminous mysteries of the Rosary and an appendix on the scriptural basis of the Marian dogmas.
