5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyment Multiplies with reading. 29 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I re-read "Hail Holy Queen" this year, finishing it just in time for the Solemnity of the Assumption, and I was glad I did. I was reminded not only of why as Catholics we celebrate this feast but realised again the importance of Mary for Christian doctrine and for Christian living. For example, Scott Hahn demonstrates how a defence of the Mary's virginity protects us and the Church from heresies that would lead some to question either the divinity of Christ, or His humanity. He explains also what Lumen Gentium states: "Redeemed by reason of the merits of her Son and united to Him by a close and indissoluble tie, she is endowed with the high office and dignity of being the Mother of the Son of God, by which account she is also the beloved daughter of the Father and the temple of the Holy Spirit."

With reference to St Athanasius, Prof. Hahn also reveals how through Mary "The Son of God became a son of man, so that sons of men might become sons of God." As a convert to Catholicism I can readily understand the reluctance that non-Catholics have in accepting the place of honour and the veneration that we give to Mary. Prof. Hahn too understands "Mary-phobia" first-hand as he was a Protestant pastor used to preaching against Catholicism, but he makes the point very clear indeed - that although Mary is recorded by Sacred Scripture as saying very little, Sacred Scripture has, in fact, much to say about Her.

The book is written in the same easy to follow style that characterises all of Scott Hahn's books, making Theology accessible without over simplification, adding a personal touch without mawkishness. It is also a book that you can read with a Bible on your lap for reference, thus assisting in a deepening love and understanding of and for Sacred Scripture. It is perfect for individuals to learn more about the Marian aspects of the Catholic faith and would serve well as a main text for a study group.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book explaining Mary's role 1 Mar 2007
By Shaden
This book is great for those who want to learn what the Catholic Church REALLY teaches about the role of Mary in an easily accessible form. Scott shows us how Mary is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament, beginning with Gen, right through to when the Davidic line was in strong form, all the way to the New Testament. It also explains how God's family can only be a family when it has a Mother, and Mary is that Mother. It shows as well that because Jesus was the Son of God, and the Son of Mary, that He perfectly fulfilled the commandment of 'Honour your mother and father' by preserving Mary from the stain of sin through his merits and power (and why would God trust His Only Son to a mother tainted by sin?!), and then preserved her sinless body from decay by assuming her into Heaven. I now understand why Catholic's have such fondness for Mary. 'All generations shall call me blessed'. We have a divine command to honour Our Mother given to us by God.

Scott Hahn has climbed the mountain on behalf of all of us who, whilst believing in the dogmas of the Blessed Virgin's Immaculate Conception and her Assumption body and soul into heaven, could not easily support our faith in these interpretations of scripture with an accurate understanding of how and why they naturally arise from the Bible and the teachings of the Church Fathers. As a former evangelical Protestant minister he is well versed in all the arguments used by Protestant Christians to castigate the One True Holy Roman Catholic Church for its veneration and deep love for the Virgin Mary. In searching for the truth about Mary, Scott found all the answers to his questions were to be found in Roman Catholic beliefs and so he made the courageous step of becoming a Catholic.

His writing style and arguments are elegant and simply explained with good-natured humour and an obvious enthusiasm of his subject, so that this book may be read by anyone - a Doctorate in Theology is not required! If the reader comes with an open heart and an open mind and a true desire to know the truth about Our Lady and how she was elevated to the position of Queen of Heaven by the will of her Divine Son, then this book's enormous riches will not disappoint.

It is a real achievement to have made the explanation of the profound, deep and holy mysteries of Our Lady's role in Christ's redemptive work accessible to everyman.
