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 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.
–Dr. Matthew Levering, James N. and Mary D. Perry Jr. Chair of Theology, Mundelein Seminary
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.
–Dr. Brant Pitre, Author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology, Augustine Institute
