Introduction to Mary
What do all the doctrines that God has revealed about the Blessed Virgin Mary have to do with me personally? How do these revealed truths about the Mother of Jesus affect my own spiritual life? How do I explain to my friends the truth about Mary and Marian devotions?Introduction to Mary helps us to answer these questions and more by presenting the fundamental elements of authentic Catholic doctrine and devotion regarding the Blessed Virgin and offers answers to ten of the more common objections to Marian doctrine and devotion.Easy to read and understand Introduction to Mary is designed to serve as a basic tool for both the parish study group and the college classroom, for both the inquiring non-Catholic and the long-standing Catholic.Dr. Mark Miravalle, husband and father of eight children, is Professor of Theology and Mariology at Franciscan University of Steubenville, an internationally known conference speaker and author of several Marian publications.In our present “Age of Mary” Dr. Miravalle offers us the opportunity, by learning the heart of Marian doctrine and devotion, to experience the truth about the person of Mary, our Spiritual Mother. For authentic love of Mary must be based on the truth about Mary.
