Description

One of Britain's most distinguished theologians explains the basic beliefs held about Mary in the Christian church.Written with an ecumenical purpose, Professor Macquarrie shows that in Mary, Christians may find resources for unity and reconciliation, rather than conflict. Each chapter explores a different event associated with Mary, from her Immaculate Conception to her Assumption and also her relation to contemporary culture.A new edition of a key text for the ecumenical movement, this book includes a new introduction and takes account of the current Roman Catholic debates on the subject of 'Mary Corredemptrix'.
