Praise

“In Walking with Mary, Ted Sri achieves something rare and wonderful: a book that seamlessly combines rich biblical scholarship, a son’s insight into the human heart of Mary, and an engaging, vividly accessible style the reader can’t put down. This is a marvelous encounter with both the Word of God and the mother of Jesus Christ, the virgin of Nazareth, the model of all Christian discipleship.” –Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia


Walking with Mary is a highly readable book that illuminates the scriptural truth about Mary. Drawing on solid biblical scholarship and Catholic tradition, Dr. Sri leads his readers along the spiritual journey of the Mother of our Lord, from her initial call from God to her soul-piercing sorrow at the foot of the cross. With rich insight, he offers practical lessons for the personal challenges we all face as Mary’s fellow pilgrims walking the path of faith. This book will help all Christians, not just Catholics, to get to know and love Mary much more.” –Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb’s Supper and Consuming the Word
 
“A child of God has Christ for a brother—and Mary for a mother. This book delivers on the promise of its title. It’s a long and lovely walk we take, on a glorious day, with Jesus and the mom he shares with us. This is what devotion was meant to be: living family life with God.” –Mike Aquilina, author of Faith of Our Fathers: Why the Early Christians Still Matter and Always Will
 
“This is no ordinary book! In it, Edward Sri combines a step-by-step Bible study on the life of the mother of Jesus with profound insights into the spiritual life of every Christian. The result is a biblical portrait of Mary of Nazareth that is both extremely informative and deeply moving. The sections on the sufferings of Mary alone are worth the price of the book. Must-reading for anyone who has ever wanted to know who the Virgin Mary really was and what her life means for us today.” –Dr. Brant Pitre, author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist
