Item Description...
Overview
Despite her prominence in the Christian narrative, Mary has largely been neglected within the Protestant church. Recent interest in such issues as feminism, spirituality, parenting, and ecumenism, however, force a serious reexamination of Mary's place in Protestant faith. In this book, widely respected Protestant scholars seek to answer three basic questions: Who is Mary? How does Mary's story intersect with contemporary life? and What does Mary teach us about God? This thoughtful and highly accessible book will be of great interest to all engaged in the debates of the contemporary church, Protestant and Roman Catholics alike.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Something About Mary  Dec 23, 2004
Among the ironies of the ordination of women in mainline denominations is a renewed Protestant interest in the Catholic icon of femininity, the Blessed Virgin Mary.

These essays by contemporary, mostly women theologians, examine the sparse but highly suggestive biblical references to Mary, and then interpret her importance in light of Reformed theology and their own experience. Almost to a person, the authors balk at the Catholic dogmas of the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption, but they also criticize the unofficial Protestant dogma of virtual silence about Mary.

The result is a polyphonic yet coherent reappraisal that views Mary as perhaps the archetypal Christian disciple. This not un-Catholic consensus may serve as the basis for further rapprochement between Protestants and Catholics regarding the humble though controversial mother of Jesus.
 
Reforming Our View of Mary  Nov 8, 2002
Blessed One: Protestant Perspectives on Mary is a thought-provoking and provocative look at a figure too often ignored by Protestants. This collection of essays, carefully edited by two top scholars in this country (one a professor of the author of this review), takes a second look at the mother of Jesus. Emphasized throughout is the scandal associated with Jesus' conception, Mary's pregnancy, and Jesus' birth and upbringing. True to the Gospels, Mary is presented here in both a positive and negative light. Mary's role as the model disciple is questioned, while recognizing and honoring her unique contribution to the history of salvation. A must-read for anyone who wants a better understanding of the role of Mary in Christianity from a Protestant perspective.
