The Communist bloc has collapsed. Factional strife is on the rise. The West faces an uncertain future. What is the message of Mary, the Mother of Jesus, for these times?
To find an answer, Dudley Plunkett explores the mystery of Mary's recent apparitions in Medjugorje. Since 1981 millions from around thde world have traveled to the tiny Yugoslavian mountain village, believing Mary to be appearing there to a group of teenagers. Plunkett, after his own pilgrimage there, has come to bleve it as well
Many book have reported on the apparitions. Queen of Prophets pushes the discussion forward: How can these apparitions be understood in light of the Bible and of the Christian traditions of the East and the West? What do the messages of Mary, her pleas for peace, prayer, and simplicity, mean to a rapidly changing world?
With great clarity Plunkett builds a bridge between the consoling and challenging message of the apparitions and the concerns of everyday life. This is a book for these times.
Dudley Plunkett attributes his conversion to Catholicism to a trip to Medjugorje. He has written about medjugorje for many publications in England and the United States, and is a director of the Medjugorje Network in England. He lives in Southampton, England.
