Mary in the Personal, Historical, Scriptural, & Spiritual Realms.
by John C. Wilhelmsson (large print)
Mary is the most misunderstood figure in the history and current practice of Christianity. This book clarifies her nature and role by looking at four distinct perspectives. "The Personal" tells of Our Lady of Guadalupe's intercession in the short story "Twin Fates." "The Historical" looks at the origins of the Rosary and Mary's influence down through the Christian age. "The Scriptural" examines Cardinal Newman's writings on Mary's role purely in terms of the Bible. And "The Spiritual" details Mary's role as Coredemptrix and the perennial truths of the spiritual life this role points to for us all. Through having all of these perspectives in one unique book, "Tales of the Theotokos" takes a fresh new look at Mary the Mother of Jesus Christ.
