More Advance Praise for The Blessed Virgin Mary (Eerdmans)

I am very happy to include here more advance praise for the Blessed Virgin Mary (Eerdmans), a book which I co-authored with Daniel Kendall, SJ. It will be released on February 28th and can be ordered by clicking on the link at the right hand side of the page. It is the last book on the list. The book has gone through a couple of versions (and one co-author!) and so is appearing later than was originally intended. But the delay, I think, made for a much better piece of work.

“This is a delightfully well-written account of Marian theology, which is unique in the extent to which it addresses the concerns of Protestants while also refusing to minimize Mary’s importance in God’s work of salvation. This book really gets to the heart of the Christian tradition, and will be of great value to students, pastors and general enquirers. It should appear on every undergraduate theology reading list.”

“Before we begin arguing theologically about Mary, we should hear what Scripture and Christians in past ages have had to say on the subject. Now we can do just that, thanks to this splendid book by Tim Perry and Daniel Kendall. The writing is balanced and thoughtful, and the annotated bibliography is a goldmine of information. A must read for anyone concerned about Christian unity.”

“This accessible book on Marian doctrine and devotion should be warmly welcomed. It reflects the growing and constructive ecumenical convergence on the significance of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the lives of Christians and their churches.”
