Product Description

In this extensive update of her 1995 work, Megan McKenna struggles to understand who Mary, the mother of Jesus, truly is. On one hand, "Mary ... has been made into the image of opposites: mother, ever-virgin, yet neither mother nor virgin as anyone else would experience those states of being. In statues and devotions she appeared ever-young, holding her baby. She was often blond, blue-eyed, and dressed impeccably in blue and white, with tracings of silver and gold. She was distant, on a pedestal, floating on clouds or held up by the hands of cherubs ... "

However, on her travels in Latin America, McKenna encounters a very different understanding of Mary as " ... the Virgin of Guadalupe, the staunch, fierce, determined woman, comadre of her people, a force to be reckoned with ... her feet firmly on the ground and her heart and resources given freely to those who side with her forgotten and betrayed children."

McKenna's quest takes the reader through each of the Gospels and Revelation, exploring every Scriptural encounter with Mary to find her in the Shadow of Grace.

Well known for her workshops and retreats, Megan McKenna received her doctorate from the Graduate Theological Union, Berkeley, CA. She has taught in Chicago, San Francisco, Dublin, and Albuquerque. She has authored numerous books.
