Product Description

In this book the author discusses how Christian images of Mary in theology, piety, dogma, and even in visions acquire new dimensions from being images of the Mother of Jesus in Islam and the female imaging of the Absolute in some of the great religions of Asia. This book relativizes and enhances the Theotokos and her ties with the People of God.

Publisher's Description

The greatest challenge to ecumenical dialogue has come not from discussion on justification by faith or papal primacy or even infallibility, but from discussions related to the Virgin Mary. In this five-part investigation of the significance of Mary--not just in Christian faiths, but to Jews and Muslims as well--Tavard gathers insights from Scripture, the Reformation, the Modern Age, Tradition, and World Religions.

Author Bio

George H. Tavard, a member of the Augustinians of the Assumption, professor emeritus of theology at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, and distinguished professor of theology at Marquette University, was a peritus at Vatican Council II, where he was involved in preparing the decree on ecumenism. He has participated in several international and American ecumenical dialogues and has written extensively on theology and ecumenism. Father Tavard is the author of A Review of Anglican Orders, The Church, Community of Salvation, and The Thousand Faces of the Virgin Mary, published by Liturgical Press.
