Praise for Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary
This book is vintage Brant Pitre: clear, persuasive, readable, and above all, inspiring. It causes us not only to know more about the Mother of God, but also to love her more.
I did not think a single book could be written about Mary that would excite and unite Catholic and Protestant readers - scholars, clergy and laity alike. What Pitre does with the Bible and Marian typology is clear and compelling. A joy to read, this is the best biblical study of Mary I have ever read. A true masterpiece.
Brant Pitre takes important theological truths and makes them not only interesting, but exciting. This book will revolutionize your understanding of the most important woman in history.
Combining rich Biblical scholarship with an engaging, easy-to-read style, this highly accessible book offers a fresh look at Mary in the Bible. Pitre clearly and convincingly shows that the Bible reveals much more about Jesus’ mother than is commonly appreciated today. A must read for every Christian who takes the Bible seriously and is open to what God’s Word has to say about Mary.

|Mary in the Bible and in Our Lives
Mary in the Bible and in Our Lives
This book offers a clear, beautiful exposition of Catholic beliefs about Mary. Not a history or a compendium, it was written by a Carmelite monk who spent decades praying and pondering the mysteries of the faith concerning the Mother of Jesus.
Catholic Mariology has matured through centuries of meditation upon both the Bible and the Church's faith in the Incarnation. The Marian dogmas of the Church are guarantors of the full meaning of the statement in the Gospel of John that "the word became flesh and dwelt among us" (1:14).
Fr. Wilfrid Stinissen shows that Mariology corrects any attempt to minimize the good news that God became man so that man could become like God. In writing about Mary, he underlines the astonishing truth that God has initiated an intimate communion with mankind. In a world that strives to reduce human dignity, Mary reveals the very high value of man in God's eyes and God's wondrous love and plan for each one of us.
Praise for Mary In the Bible and Our Lives
"An acclaimed spiritual writer and holy monk presents the beautiful Catholic beliefs about Mary that he has meditated on throughout his whole priestly life. Fr. Stinissen draws from both Sacred Scripture and the long tradition of the Church's beliefs about Mary and her singular privileges from God as Christ's mother to help us know and love her more."
"This wonderful book on the Virgin Mary by the esteemed Carmelite spiritual master offers both insightful doctrinal clarity and a stimulus to a renewed love for Our Lady. His chapter on Mary's experience of darkness as part of her maternal role in God's plan is of great value, a unique contribution to spirituality."
"Fr. Wilfrid Stinissen provides us with the scriptural and theological tools to understand, explain, and truly believe Mary's Yes to God and to emulate it in our own lives."

|Rethinking Mary in the New Testament
Rethinking Mary in the New Testament
Scholars often have questioned how much the New Testament can tell us about the Mother of Jesus. After all, Mary appears only in a few accounts and speaks on limited occasions. Can Scripture really support the many Marian beliefs developed in the Church over time?
In Rethinking Mary in the New Testament, Dr. Edward Sri shows that the Bible reveals more about Mary than is commonly appreciated. For when the Mother of Jesus does appear in Scripture, it’s often in passages of great importance, steeped in the Jewish Scriptures, and packed with theological significance.
This comprehensive work examines every key New Testament reference to Mary, addressing common questions along the way, such as:
– What was Mary’s life like before the Annunciation?
– Is there biblical support for Mary’s Immaculate Conception and Perpetual Virginity?
– Does Scripture reveal Mary as our spiritual mother?
– What does it mean for Mary to be “full of grace”?
– How is Mary the “New Eve,” “Ark of the Covenant,” and “Queen Mother”?
– Can Mary be identified with the “woman” in Revelation 12?
– Rethinking Mary in the New Testament offers a fresh, in-depth look at the Mother of Jesus in Scripture—one that helps us know Mary better and her role in God’s plan.
JUST ONE WORD CAN TELL US A LOT ABOUT MARY
How can just the words “hail,” “full of grace,” or “woman” reveal so much about the Mother of Jesus? This in-depth, fresh look at Mary in the Bible explores every key New Testament reference to Mary. Drawing on recent insights in biblical scholarship and traditional wisdom sometimes overlooked, Dr. Edward Sri devotes entire chapters to analyzing the small scriptural details to help us know better who Mary really is and the role she plays in God’s plan of salvation.
About the AuthorEdward Sri, Ph.D., is a well-known author and speaker. He is a founding leader of FOCUS (Fellowship of Catholic University Students), currently serves as FOCUS vice president of formation, and holds a doctorate from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas in Rome.

Praise for Rethinking Mary
This is Sri's best book so far—and that means it is an extraordinary book indeed. A book like this
could only be authored by someone with a mastery of contemporary biblical scholarship who also
happens to be a lifelong scholar of Mariology. This rare conjunction describes Edward Sri. Easy to
read, serious, and scholarly, this book delivers on its promises. Here we meet the Mary whom the
evangelists aimed to reveal to us.
In this work, Sri brings his remarkable knowledge of Mary in Scripture to bear on one of the most
pressing needs in the Church today: an up-to-date and thoroughly exegetical analysis of every key
New Testament passage regarding Mary. This book is a major achievement, and a must-read for
anyone interested in what the Bible really teaches about the Mother of Jesus.
