Product Description

Product Description

The New "Mary" Question

Mary--Another Redeemer? explores Roman Catholic teachings about Mary from a biblical and historical perspective. Skilled and knowledgeable author James White traces how the Mary of the Bible--esteemed mother of the Lord, obedient servant and chosen vessel of God--has become the Immaculately Conceived, Bodily Assumed Queen of Heaven, viewed as Co-Mediator with Christ, and now widely recognized as Co-Redeemer by many in the Catholic Church. A calm, even-handed look at the woman the Bible calls "blessed among women"--and an invitation to single-minded devotion to God's truth.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book focussed on one particular issue 20 Aug 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Relax, Joe Crivelli. Laying aside your hyper-dulia of Mary, as well as your enmity against James White, we must allow all potential readers of the book to understand one thing: this book deals with one issue, namely a growing movement to name Mary as co-Redeemer along with Christ. Many Catholics are opposed to such a doctrine, even with their own Marian dulia. Therefore, Joe, you are not the standard-setter. It looks like you have crossed the line over to latria. If that be the case, it is no small wonder that you would hate this book.
White does not hate Mary. As a Protestant, White reveres Mary as the Blessed mother of the Lord. White reveres Mary as "she who is blessed among women." White does not, however, honor Mary as co-Redeemer, nor Mediatrix, nor any other honor that makes her a virtual co-Lord. <== It is this aspect that White's book investigates.
Mary, in heaven, weeps over your vicious heart, Joe. If I claim to you that she appeared to me nightly for a month and told me so, could you prove me wrong? Or would you just make a pilgrimmage to my bedside?
For the potential reader, if you are curious about the history of the movement, and some of the politics behind it, you might find this book of value and interest. If you disagree with White, he is willing to debate. Contact him instead of venting on Amazon.com.

This book actually shocked me. Having been a Catholic at one time I didn't realize the full extent of the teachings of the Catholic Church concerning Marian beliefs. For those of you who are Protestant, there is some material in here that you may find offensive (as the author warns), but it is worth the risk to truly understand the issues.
All of the explanations about Catholic beliefs are taken directly from Papal pronouncements and Church endorsed writing by various authors. At least 40% of this book is comprised of lengthy quoted materials.
For anyone, Catholic or not, who wants to know what the Catholic Church teaches about Mary, this book is an excellent resource. It will open your eyes and really make you think.

1.0 out of 5 stars Eva-Ave 1 Mar 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Oh dear. Like a river out of Eden, James R. White's "Mary-Another Redeemer?" brims with blunders. My remarks, however, mostly explore not the misstatements but rather the gaping omissions in his treatment of the Virgin Mary's role in the New Covenant. I preface my comments with this long excerpt from John Henry (later Cardinal) Newman's "Letter to the Rev. E. B. Pusey" (in "Mary-The Second Eve: from the Writings of John Henry Newman," Sister Eileen Breen, editor, Tan Books and Publishers, Rockford, Illinois, 1982, p. 2):
-"Eve had a definite, essential position in the First Covenant. The fate of the human race lay with Adam; he it was who represented us. It was in Adam that we fell; though Eve had fallen, still, if Adam had stood, we should not have lost those supernatural privileges which were bestowed upon him as our first father....In those primeval events, Eve had an integral share. 'The woman, being seduced, was in the transgression.' She listened to the Evil Angel; she offered the fruit to her husband, and he ate of it. She co-operated, not as an irresponsible instrument, but intimately and personally in the sin; she brought it about. As the history stands, she was a 'sine-qua-non,' a positive, active cause of it. And she had her share in its punishment; in the sentence pronounced on her, she was recognized as a real agent in the temptation and its issue, and she suffered accordingly.

Subtle is the Lord. James R. White's Mary-Another Redeemer? betrays an either-or mindset too clumsy to articulate not only the subtleties but even many broad features of the title Co-Redeemer. Mr. White frames his complaints about various Catholic teachings, not just the doctrine of Co-Redemption, in an either-or box, forcing a dichotomy. For example, according to Mr. White, applying Co-Redeemer to the Virgin Mary equates Mary with Jesus or makes her an alternate to him. Mr. White faintly acknowledges that Co- in Co-Redeemer means with rather than equal or alternative. He dismisses this difference, however, asserting here or arguing there that Catholics fail to maintain distinctions such as this. He includes Another in the book's title precisely to indicate that the Catholic Church, in assigning Co-Redeemer to Mary, sets Mary as an equal or alternative to Jesus. What rot. Then Mr . White sets fire to the straw woman of his own making - the false charges that he attributes to orthodox Catholic teaching or actual Catholic practice. Mr. White is a consuming fire absent from the Bible and from the early Church.... Oh? A splendid passage loosed by the obedience of Mary. What the virgin Eve had bound in unbelief, the Virgin Mary loosed through faith (Against Heresies AD 180-199). Many taught very clearly that only Christ was [immaculately] conceived.... Oh? on account of the honor of the Lord I wish to have absolutely no question when treating of sins... (Nature and Grace AD 415). Scholars agree that St. Augustine certainly believed in Mary=92s exemption from personal sin. Some also see in this famous passage his belief in Mary's exemption from original sin. Theirs may be a minority opinion among Augustinian scholars, but it would make St. Read more ›
