Overview

The world’s great writings about Mary—her faith, strength and love—

Selections from influential writers, thinkers and theologians—both ancient and modern, from a wide range of Western and Eastern backgrounds—explore what life may have been like for Mary, Joseph and Jesus, and celebrate the many ways in which Mary serves as a model of holiness for all women and men; as the archetype of motherhood; and as a source of tenderness, comfort, protection and peace.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Ford-Grabowsky (Stations of the Light; WomanPrayers), former academic dean at the University of Creation Spirituality, CA, has assembled an interesting anthology of prayers, poems, legends, and stories about the Virgin Mary. What is distinctive about this collection is its broad inclusiveness-extracts from the Koran, Thomas Traherne, Paul Claudel, Andrew Harvey, Ephrem of Syria, and Megan McKenna sit side by side. Many thought-provoking and beautiful selections should suggest to most readers the wide appeal of Mary, the mother of Jesus. For most collections. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.

Meet the Author

Mary Ford-Grabowsky is an award-winning author and teacher in the field of theology and spirituality. After receiving her doctorate from Princeton Theological Seminary, she taught in the religious studies department at Regis College, edited the journal Fellowship in Prayer, and became academic dean at the University of Creation Spirituality in the San Francisco Bay area. Among her books are Stations of the Light, Sacred Voices*, WomanPrayers*, Prayers for All People, and Sacred Poems and Prayers of Love (*selections of One Spirit Book Club). An experienced lecturer, workshop leader, and radio and television speaker, she is featured on the widely-acclaimed CD produced by the BBC, Hildegard von Bingen in Portrait, and her interview with "New Dimensions" radio in California was reproduced on a four-disc set called Women of Wisdom. She and her husband live in Massachusetts.


Andrew Harvey is the author of many critically acclaimed books, including Son of Man. His memoir A Journey in Ladakh was praised as "one of the best books available on the Western experience of Tibetan spiritual life." His just-published memoir Sun at Midnight was praised by Deepak Chopra, who said, "for those who have gone through the dark night of the soul and for those seeking a genuine understanding of spirituality, this is a very inspiring story." Harvey is also the coauthor of the New York Times bestseller The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. Born in India, he was the youngest person ever awarded a fellowship to All Souls College, Oxford. He has devoted the past thirty years of his life to study and experiencing the world's spiritual traditions and is widely recognized as one of our greatest communicators of mysticism and contemplative living today.
