Overview

Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross by Edward Sri

Mary appears only a few times in the Bible, but those few passages come at crucial moments. Catholics believe that Mary is the ever-virgin Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. But she also was a human being--a woman who made a journey of faith through various trials and uncertainties and endured her share of suffering. Even with her unique graces and vocation, Mary remains a woman we can relate to and from whom we have much to learn.
 
In Walking with Mary, Edward Sri looks at the crucial passages in the Bible concerning Mary and offers insight about the Blessed Mother's faith and devotion that we can apply in our daily lives. We follow her step-by-step through the New Testament account of her life, reflecting on what the Scriptures tell us about how she responded to the dramatic events unfolding around her.
 
“This book is the fruit of my personal journey of studying Mary through the Scriptures, from her initial calling in Nazareth to her painful experience at the cross,” writes Edward Sri “It is intended to be a highly readable, accessible work that draws on wisdom from the Catholic tradition, recent popes, and biblical scholars of a variety of perspectives and traditions. With the riches of these insights, we will ponder what her journey of faith may have been like in order to draw out spiritual lessons for our own walk with God.” He add, “It is my hope, therefore, that whether you are of a Catholic, Protestant, or other faith background, this book may help you to know, understand, and love Mary more, and that it may inspire you to walk in her footsteps as a faithful disciple of the Lord in your own pilgrimage of faith.”

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.
