Publisher's Description

Mary appears only a few times in the Bible, but those few passages come at crucial moments. Catholics believe that Mary is the ever-virgin Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth. But she also was a human being--a woman who made a journey of faith through various trials and uncertainties and endured her share of suffering. Even with her unique graces and vocation, Mary remains a woman we can relate to and from whom we have much to learn.
 
In Walking with Mary, Edward Sri looks at the crucial passages in the Bible concerning Mary and offers insight about the Blessed Mother's faith and devotion that we can apply in our daily lives. We follow her step-by-step through the New Testament account of her life, reflecting on what the Scriptures tell us about how she responded to the dramatic events unfolding around her.
 
"This book is the fruit of my personal journey of studying Mary through the Scriptures, from her initial calling in Nazareth to her painful experience at the cross," writes Edward Sri "It is intended to be a highly readable, accessible work that draws on wisdom from the Catholic tradition, recent popes, and biblical scholars of a variety of perspectives and traditions. With the riches of these insights, we will ponder what her journey of faith may have been like in order to draw out spiritual lessons for our own walk with God." He add, "It is my hope, therefore, that whether you are of a Catholic, Protestant, or other faith background, this book may help you to know, understand, and love Mary more, and that it may inspire you to walk in her footsteps as a faithful disciple of the Lord in your own pilgrimage of faith."

Editorial Reviews

"In Walking with Mary, Ted Sri achieves something rare and wonderful: a book that seamlessly combines rich biblical scholarship, a son's insight into the human heart of Mary, and an engaging, vividly accessible style the reader can't put down. This is a marvelous encounter with both the Word of God and the mother of Jesus Christ, the virgin of Nazareth, the model of all Christian discipleship." –Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia


"Walking with Mary is a highly readable book that illuminates the scriptural truth about Mary. Drawing on solid biblical scholarship and Catholic tradition, Dr. Sri leads his readers along the spiritual journey of the Mother of our Lord, from her initial call from God to her soul-piercing sorrow at the foot of the cross. With rich insight, he offers practical lessons for the personal challenges we all face as Mary’s fellow pilgrims walking the path of faith. This book will help all Christians, not just Catholics, to get to know and love Mary much more." –Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper and Consuming the Word
 
"A child of God has Christ for a brother—and Mary for a mother. This book delivers on the promise of its title. It’s a long and lovely walk we take, on a glorious day, with Jesus and the mom he shares with us. This is what devotion was meant to be: living family life with God." –Mike Aquilina, author of Faith of Our Fathers: Why the Early Christians Still Matter and Always Will
 
"This is no ordinary book! In it, Edward Sri combines a step-by-step Bible study on the life of the mother of Jesus with profound insights into the spiritual life of every Christian. The result is a biblical portrait of Mary of Nazareth that is both extremely informative and deeply moving. The sections on the sufferings of Mary alone are worth the price of the book. Must-reading for anyone who has ever wanted to know who the Virgin Mary really was and what her life means for us today." –Dr. Brant Pitre, author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist

    I recently finished Walking With Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross, by Edward Sri. And let me tell you, every step was fascinating!! I loved this book!

    At Christmastime, Christians all over recognize and remember Mary, the mother of God...but the rest of the year, so many forget her. Yet what a gift she is to us from her Son! A perfect example of Christian womanhood for us to imitate, and a special motherly intercessor on our behalf.

    This book was a gem in that it dug deeper into the life of Mary solely based on the Scriptures. I was impacted by reflecting on her solid faith and trust in conceiving, bearing, and raising the Son of God. She inspired me with her faithfulness, humility, and trust in God even when she was not in control and could not see the future. (such a great lesson for me!)

    Though there only a few areas Mary appears in Scripture, I was amazed at the significance and deeper meanings of them. It was so beautiful to learn more about "the Woman clothed with the sun" in Revelation, Jesus' important words to Mary from the Cross, the conversation between Mary and her cousin Elizabeth, and the power of Gabriel's message to Mary in Luke Chapter 1.

    One of my favorite parts was the last one I mentioned: the angel Gabriel's message to Mary (also the prayer we know as the Hail Mary). In Luke 1, we read that he called her "full of grace," God's name for her. He said "the Lord is with you," which in the Old Testament was said whenever a heavenly messenger appeared to someone on earth to give them a difficult task, a demanding mission. Mary knew this, but said yes. She was human and knew not what was ahead. She was troubled but chose faith over fear. She said yes to whatever God wanted of her and so was chosen to bear Him to the world. What an incredible woman. How blessed we are that God gave her to us as our Mother too.

    This book was easy to understand despite the in-depth breaking apart of Scripture. It encouraged me, inspired me, and made me reflect on my own womanhood and how I can become more like Mary, and more like the woman God created me to be.

    I highly recommend it and think both my Catholic and my Protestant brothers and sisters would enjoy it.

    Walking with Mary is a book that can be used and read in so many ways. You could use it as a devotional, reading a chapter that really speaks to you at that moment in your life. It would also be a great group or individual bible study. I used it in this way, I would read the chapter then use the verses that were referenced in each chapter. Edward Sri references chapters from John and Luke. He starts at the beginning of Mary's wonderful and blessed journey to the her heartbreak at the cross.

    Walking with Mary is a book that all Catholic's should own and read. After reading Walking with Mary I felt so much closer to Mary. I really thing that even non Catholics would enjoy this book and maybe after reading this would have a better understanding of why Catholics honor Mary.
