Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the "traditions of men"? Should she be called the "Mother of God," or just the mother of Jesus? Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children? By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her? And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?
In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.

Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary (Signed by Dr. Pitre)
As always, good work on a very important subject. A recommended resource on sharing our faith with our brothers and sisters of other denominations.
Fascinating Book. It's a fresh take on what we have known all our lives as cradle Catholics, put into a simplistic and easy reading teaching. If only my Catechism lessons as a child could have explained things in this light I can only imagine how much further along I would be in my faith. thanks Dr. Pitre.

Thank you. This book gives me the tool I need to explain Mary, not just to non-Catholics but to Catholics. This book simplifies the teachings and I am running on "OT pre-figurations can never be greater than their NT fulfillment". Thank you!
