Full Product Description
As one who who lived in the world but also lived very close to the heart of God, Andrew Jones explores the different ways in which Mary is presented in the Gospels and in Christian spirituality down through history.
His thoughtful and engaging presentation shows how the significance the Gospel's Mary extends far beyond the Christmas story, to the foot of the cross and beyond.
By setting Mary in her full biblical context, drawing on both Old and New Testaments, he also considers how Mary can be an invaluable focus for ecumenical unity, rather than a means of division.
As more than just a mother at the manger, Mary can be a pattern for our own discipleship. She is an enduring witness to the central importance of transfiguration and liberation as characteristics of the Kingdom of God, characteristics that should be visible in our lives as followers of Jesus today.

MaryMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
What a brilliant and beautiful book, a look at the person of Mary in depth and detail that will make a phenomenally different study for churches or individuals that maybe have thought Mary was not so relevant to their traditions or gospel.
Andrew Jones though addresses this and highlights the relevance of Mary for all traditions by not only looking at what the Gospels do, and don't, say about her, but by also holding her up in light of other gospel occurences such as the transfiguration and then reflecting that back to our here and now too and looking at how she is a witness to discipleship and a beacon of liberation.
A very easy to read but detailed book that includes group study or personal reflection question too.
