This book is truly what the title says a 'Moving Portrayal of the Virgin Mary:. It encompasses her role in God becoming man with both a fully human and divine existence. It also speaks about the call to the life of virginity, and virgintiy within marriage for the love of God. The books touches upon the love between a man and a woman being so great a feeling that when God is in their life that love is joined to a heavenly realm. Sheen goes on also about the role of obedience from Mary, Joseph, Jesus (who subjected himself to obedience to humans in order to fulfill His Father's will), obedience of children to their parents.... Excellent book - I can't say enough to compliment the book. Sheen was definitely inspired by the Holy Spirit. Easy reading level. Great for High school and college courses on Mary's role in the Catholic Church and Christianity. Mary as a role model for all especially for women.

Very few people will ever achieve the skill of Fulton J. Sheen in bringing the most important figures of the Bible to life as beautifully and succinctly as he has the Mother of God. Perhaps it is because he, too, is a saint. Or just because he knew Her Son so well. Be that as it may, Archbishop Sheen helps us know Her as well as he does--like the world's first (and great) love.
