1.0 out of 5 stars seeks to diminish Mary's role 15 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The author asserts that Mary was 'a sinner who put her trust in the Saviour'. And that 'Jesus taught that Mary was no more blessed than others who obey his word. ' In fact Catholics, Orthodox and many Anglicans believe in the doctrine of the Immaculate Conception. That Mary was conceived without inheriting original sin. And that she never yielded to sin in her life.

Also the author asserts that Jesus gave Mary to be John's mother because he felt sorry for her. Surely he did this not to pity Mary but because he knew John, and all of us need the wondrous motherhood of Mary.

The following extract is from Catholic Answers:
And [the angel Gabriel] came to [Mary] and said, "Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with you!" But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God." (Luke 1:28-30)

Many Protestants will insist this text to be little more than a common greeting of the Archangel Gabriel to Mary. "What does this have to do with Mary being without sin?" Yet, the truth is, according to Mary herself, this was no common greeting. The text reveals Mary to have been "greatly troubled at the saying and considered in her mind what sort of greeting this might be" (Luke 1:29, emphasis added). What was it about this greeting that was so uncommon for Mary to react this way? We can consider at least two key.aspects.

First, according to biblical scholars (as well as Pope John Paul II), the angel did more than simply greet Mary. The angel actually communicated a new name or title to her. (cf. Redemptoris Mater, 8, 9).

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Faith 30 Sep 2009
By Angela J. Zaev - Published on Amazon.com
Take your children on an adventure with Mary, Mother of Jesus in this delightful retelling of Mary's life as found in the Bible accurately retold in story from. This book begins with young Mary, betrothed to Joseph, the humble carpenter; tells of her encounter with the angel Gabriel and receiving the news that she would give birth to Jesus. Travel with Mary to see her cousin Elizabeth, then pregnant with john the Baptist and on to the long trek to Bethlehem where she would give birth to the Savior in a stable. This retelling even includes how Joseph and Mary took Jesus to the temple and met with Simeon. Meet the Shepherds and learn about the wise men from an Eastern country who come to worship the King of Kings to the distress of King Herod. Travel with Mary and Joseph on a frantic search to locate Jesus when he was a young lad, finding him in the temple. See Jesus' first miracle, the wedding at Cana, from Mary's perspective then travel the sad road with Mary to the foot of the cross only to discover true happiness in Jesus' resurrection. It's a great retelling with artful illustrations, pointing children to Christ.
