Editorial Reviews

AIM, World Library Publications
In alphabetical order, from Ark of the New Covenant to Virgin of Tenderness, this book looks at many of them, including the largest category, "Our Lady of...," which shows how the faithful in various places on the planet have made Mary their own through the course of Christian time. ...Above all, the book shows us the faithful face of the disciple and the feminine face of God, both roles Mary has played prominently and continues to play in the life of the Church throughout the world and in the lives of believers.
Buena Vista Resource Page
The author selects 100 from a list estimated to exceed 6000 titles that Christians have bestowed upon Mary to reflect her virtues and charismas.
Catholic Chronicle
The reader will meet some old favorites as well as many Madonnas little known here in the United States.—Toledo, Ohio
Catholic New York
A new book on Mary, Mother of God, offers a spiritual feast for everyone, whether already devoted to Mary or only beginning to learn about her.
Catholic New York
The stories are easy reading and reflect Mary's influence in people's lives from Japan to the United States.
Crux of the News
An easy-to-read book packed full of history, facts, and information for anyone who wants to delve into the topic, scholars or lay alike.
Evangelist
The book includes, in alphabetical order, 100 names for the Blessed Virgin Mary. Each chapter includes an explanation of where the name came from, a traditional prayer to Mary under that title and a new prayer.
Faith Connection
Using Scripture, the writings of the early church, papal documents, and recent biblical and theological scholarship, the author examines one hundred titles of Marian devotion.
Review for Religious
...offers reflections on names of Mary such as Seat of Wisdom. Each reflection has a brief story of the history of the name, a traditional prayer to Mary under that name. The book concludes with a new litany in honor of the Mother of God.
The Episcopal New Yorker
Anyone who is even remotely interested in Church History will find this volume fascinating.
The Living Light
Over the centuries Christians have bestowed untold numbers of names or titles of devotion upon Mary . . . Chiffolo explores the origins and meanings of what the Church believes about Mary by examining a hundred of these names.
Library Journal
The rise of the scientific method and of death-of-God theology has done nothing to dim the luster of the mother of Jesus Christ; if anything, reported apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary have increased in frequency and urgency since 1900. Chiffolo, author of books on Padre Pio and other Catholic subjects, has created a highly devout and useful guide to 100 of her "names": not limited to the Rosa Mystica or Our Lady of Guadalupe, it includes Our Lady of Akita and Our Lady of Zhyrovytsi. Astonishing in their variety, these stories and prayers should intrigue the Catholic and non-Catholic reader alike. Highly recommended. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
