Editorial Reviews

“How a one-sided portrayal of the Mother of God has been used to keep real women under wraps.”
“Spong restores a flesh-and-blood humanity to the mother of Jesus.”
“A marvelous combination of scholarly, speculative, and imaginative reflection written in language accessible to the theologically unsophisticated. Highly recommended.”
