Product Description

Jesus, as is well known, was born and raised as a Jew in first-century Palestine. A great deal of theological study has focused on the Jewish cultural and religious context of his life and ministry. It is only natural that this attention should lead us to a new approach to his mother, Mary of Nazareth.

To some extent, this quest for the Jewish Mary involves excavating beneath centuries of devotional reflection and artistic depictions that have presented a mythologized Mary, detached from history and from her specific Jewish identity. In this book, Mary Christine Athans draws on the latest historical research, the fruits of post-Vatican II Jewish-Christian dialogue, the insights of feminist theology, and contemporary spiritual reflection to rediscover the Jewish Mary - a woman of enormous courage, strength, and prayer.

    The author of this book didn't produce anything of note. It seemed to be the airing of discontent with the Mary of ages past and tries to introduce a new and improved issue of the Mother of God. I had expected what it was like to raise a child in the conditions of the world of that time and place. Instead, it was the author's attempt to "change" the subject. The title did not live up to expectations. It was a bit ambitious for the content of the book.
