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.
“In Walking with Mary, Ted Sri achieves something rare and wonderful: a book that seamlessly combines rich biblical scholarship, a son’s insight into the human heart of Mary, and an engaging, vividly accessible style the reader can’t put down. This is a marvelous encounter with both the Word of God and the mother of Jesus Christ, the virgin of Nazareth, the model of all Christian discipleship.” –Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M.
