Dr. Scott Hahn, a Professor from Franciscan University in Steubenville and a noted convert from the Presbyterian Church, has written a valuable books on the Blessed Mother and how sacred scripture supports Catholic/Eastern Orthodox views on her role in humanity's salvation. He gives many examples in the Old Testament that foreshadow her role in slavation history (These are called 'Types'; like how passsages from the Book of Psalms foreshadow the crucifixion of Crhist). For example, one of Mary's titles is Ark of the Covenant, which is an Old Testament type. She is also compared to such Biblical women as Sarah (who had a miraculous birth when she was very old), Hannah, and Esther. Dr. Hahn also gives many personal anecdotes on his journey to Catholicism and clears up Protestant misconceptions on Catholic/Orthodox (and even Anglican) venertation of the greatest saint of all time. He himself use to believe it was all Mary worship. The book ends with an appropriate discussion on the Rosary, one of Catholicism's favorite devotions for the 'Theotokos' or God Bearer. A must for all Marian devotees and as well as our Protestant brothers who may not understand Catholic devotion to Our Mother, who the Lord gave to his disciples. Enjoy and God Bless!

As a recent convert to Catholicism, I would highly suggest this book to Catholics and non-Catholics alike. The down-to-earth, easy to read language used in this book can be enjoyed by people of all ages.

Dr. Hahn has truely captured the wonderful gift that Our Heavenly Father has given us in Our Blessed Mother. The way Kings of the Old Testament had their mother as their Queen is exactly the way Jesus, Our King, has His own Mother, our Mother, as Queen of Heaven and earth. Whether she is acknowleged or not she does care for us and loves us very, very much. Our Lord has blessed Dr. Hahn and his family for their conversion to Catholicism and toward Our Blessed Mother. A must read for those who've know Her all their lives, for those who long to know Her, and for all the rest of Her children too. She loves all of us!!!

Scott Hahn reminds us early in HAIL, HOLY QUEEN that according to the Second Vatican Council both Christ and Scripture were given to us by God for the sake of salvation. The author also agrees with Saint Augustine that the New Testament is concealed in the Old Testament which is in turn revealed in the New Testament. For instance there are many parallels which can be drawn between Genesis and the Gospel of John. Hahn shows us one way to look at Scripture is as the story of God's preparation for and completion of His self-revelation in Jesus Christ. Mary's role is an integral part of this story. Jesus Christ is the New Adam and Mary is the New Eve. Hahn's books are much easier to appreciate if we are already familiar with the Bible as a whole in addition to the separate readings we absorb as part of the Mass. The book ends with a concise history of the rosary and an explanation of its enduring value in the prayer lives of Catholics.

Scholarship pairs beautifully with acessiblilty. This book will persuade those inclined to love Mary as the Mother of God, but may have some hesitations based upon misinfomation about proper devotion due to Mary as Mother of Jesus and Mother of us as well. Dr. Hahn's glee in rediscovering the joy of finding Mary as mother is kept just below the surface, permitting clear and logical exposition based upon historical context and theological Tradition.

If you ever wondered why Mary said 'all generations shall call her blessed' and why the angel addressed her as 'full of grace', then you will enjoy this book. You will see why Catholics call Mary their 'spiritual' Mother. Dr Hahn explains how Mary's queenship is directly related and dependent upon Jesus' kingship. I recommend this book for Catholics and non-Catholics alike.

I highly recommend this splendid work of Scott Hahn. I believe that so many people will find 'Hail, Holy Queen' very helpful in discovering and rediscovering Mary. The book's style is simple and elegant. It's message, in fidelity to Vatican II, is crystal-clear in concentrating our attention on Mary, the Mother of God, in her relationship to Christ and His Church.

Raised in a Protestant church Mary was not spoken of much. Probably because our ministers did not want to sound Catholic and to them Catholic reverence for Mary bordered on idolatry. After reading Scott Hahn's book I see how unfortunate that was. This is an absolute must read Christians, Protestants and Catholics alike. I highly recommend this book.

This man may very well be the next Dr. of the Church! My husband & I love how he explains things so beautifully so that a novice can understand even the most complicated of concepts. His research is complete and he delivers a fantastic understanding of Mary. I heartily recommend this book to Christians of all denominations, especially Catholics who long to know Our Lady and understand why we honor (not worship) her.

Excellent and easy read for Protestants and Catholics searching for answers to the Marian question. Hahn, being a Catholic convert from evangelical Protestantism understands and explains the topic of Mary: who she is, what she means to the church, biblical defense for Mary, and why she is important to our lives.

Hail, Holy Queen: A Summary With perspicuous language and poetic rhythm, Scoot Hahn delivers a beautiful portrayal of our Queen Mother, Mary. Scott’s educational insight illuminates the darkness of Marian fallacy, and he defines how to be truly devoted to Mary’s ever magnificent glorification through Christ. This book is the beginner’s preeminent study of Marian apologetics, with personal anecdotes, that brings definition to who Mary truly is and how we, an ecumenical body, need to venerate Mary and never be reticent in our love for her. My favorite quote from the book is a description of God that enlightens the voice of transcendence: “Though He is eternal and He is creator, He is not the eternal creator. Creation is something that takes place in time, and God transcends time. So, though creation is something God does, it does not define who He is.” The reason I personally favor this quote begins with rational discourse. Our human language can never describe the irrationally ineffable, however, because God rationally incarnated himself, through the ever Virgin Mary, Jesus became a way for humanity to describe the Trinitarian God; Jesus described God as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Therefore, although our language may bloviate and verbosely ramble on, we may conclude that Scott’s quote defines a reality in such a linguistically unsubordinated way. God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit raises the level of superiority to impossibility, however, because one women acquiesced to God we can therefore proclaim our Trinitarian God as King, and Mary as Queen, of Heaven. The ultimate declaration is given to the fact that this book examines Mary, the Mother of God, the great Theotokos, and the mediatrix, and Gods greatest creation. Moreover, after reading this book you will grasp the meaning of Immaculate Conception. I highly recommend reading Scott Hahn’s material.

Well written and thorough with a good emphasis on Mary not liking to see her children fighting over her.
