The bestselling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist casts new light on the Virgin Mary, showing that she is an icon for women and men to emulate in contemporary society.
Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they just traditions made up by old white men? Is she truly the "Mother of God" or just the mother of Jesus? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children? By praying to Mary, are Catholics "worshiping" her? And why are these points of doctrine relevant to securing a proper understanding of Jesus Christ?
In Mother of God: The Jewish Roots of the Virgin Mary, Dr. Pitre will take readers step-by-step through Sacred Scripture from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation and show just how amazingly biblical the Catholic Church's teaching on Mary really is. Dr. Pitre will use the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is nothing less than the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, the New Eve, and the New Ark of the Covenant.
