Two thousand years ago, a girl from Nazareth was transformed by a simple "yes" into the Mother of God - the subject of sublime devotion, divisive controversy, and extravagent speculation. A mother and a virgin, a saint and a peasant, a woman both tragic and triumphant, Mary has held sway over the human imagination for centuries. Yet she has never felt as relevant to our everyday lives as she does today. In one essay the author's travels in the Holy Land are detailed, a landscape wracked by religious strife but still overflowing with the spirit of generosity that Mary embodies. From Sudanese refugee camps to the painful relminders of Auschwitz, from the struggle of divorce to the challenges of raising a child with autism, we see how Mary's tenderness, bravery, and grace infuse the story of every mother, young and old. For men and women seeking to better understand their own life journey, this book looks at the many miracles, large and small, along the way. Bound in maroon cloth with dustjacket. ; B&W and Color Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9 3/4" tall; 332 pages
