I choose this book because Christmas is just around the corner,
I choose this book because Christmas is just around the corner, and I thought it would be nice to examine scripture concerning Mary, because she is the mother of our savior. Mary is only mentioned a couple of essential times in scripture. Each of these times spotlights Mary's devotion to the father. Sri contrasts these key times that Mary appears in scripture to our lives, which answers the question; What is this scripture speaking to us?
When author Edward Sri uses Mary for intercessary prayer he finds a, "..new inspiration and encouragement for my own walk with the Lord and a desire to imitate her more in my life". I found that through Sri's examinations I was able to understand Mary more, and identify with many of her feelings. This is a good book to read if you want to know and understand Mary better. It also explains not only the position Mary has in the Catholic church, but what she offers anyone who meditates on her relationship and devotion with God.
