Catholic for a Reason II, Scripture and the Mystery of the Mother of God, edited by Scott Hahn and Leon Suprenant, demolishes the "mystery" of the Mother of God and other misconceptions about Catholic teaching on the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The truth is that Catholics do not worship Mary. Catholic teaching on Mary is scriptural. Noted Scripture scholar Scott Hahn and other prominent Catholics like Jeff Cavins, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, and Kimberly Hahn examine the scriptural basis for the Church's teaching on Mary.
You'll learn why the Catholic Church teaches that Mary is the Mother of God, who was immaculately conceived, remained always a virgin, and was assumed body and soul into Heaven. You'll understand how the Blessed Virgin is the fulfillment of the Old Testament images of the woman, the ark, and the queen. You'll also learn what the Angel Gabriel meant when he called Mary "full of grace," and what it means to be a child of Mary in the Church.
Whether you're a non-Catholic who wants to learn about the Church's teaching on Mary, or a Catholic who wants to understand it better and explain it to others, Catholic For a Reason II is the book for you.
