Mary as she is presented in Scripture is the subject of this book. The evidence, admittedly, is slim but a careful analysis, as the reader will quickly see, yields an enormous wealth of information. What Scripture shows us is that the stories about Mary have a two-fold aspect. On the one level we can see what God was teaching Mary. On the second level we can apply these lessons to ourselves. It is not the case, of course, that God approached Mary with the explicit purpose of being a teacher. It is rather that all that happened to her became a form of lesson. If we have eyes to see, we are able to discern what this lesson was. It was Mary’s experience to receive God into her very being and to bring forth for the world the Messiah. She becomes a model for all her children who, like her, are called to find God within themselves and to radiate divine love to other people. This book, then, will examine in detail each reference in Scripture to Mary in both the Old and the New Testaments, and suggest the lessons for her and for us that such references may contain.
