Ever wonder why so many people pay so much attention to Mary, the Mother of Jesus? From the most ancient traditions of Mary in Christianity to the “Hail Mary” pass in American football, the Mother of Jesus has pervaded most world cultures for the last two thousand years.
But could the Mother of Jesus also be your mother?
That’s the question explored in the exciting new book, Meet Your Mother. This easy-read pocket book on Mary covers all the major teachings about the Mother of Jesus, but is particularly written for the person who has little or no background knowledge about her. Authored by Dr. Mark Miravalle, (a professor who has taught and written about Mary for over 25 years), Meet Your Mother is the perfect little book to introduce someone to the life and truth about Jesus’ Mother, but also to renew a person’s existing knowledge and love for the woman believed to have brought Jesus into the world, and whom Jesus gave personally to every human being with his dying words, “This is your mother.”
Here’s an excerpt from the Introduction of Meet Your Mother:
This little book is about your Mother. I know, you might not see her as that right now, but that’s the point of the book—to meet her, if you do not already know her, and if you do already know her, to love her more… Now, please consider reading on, even if you do not consider Jesus to be your best friend, and/or if you don’t presently believe Mary, the Mother of Jesus, is your spiritual mother. I would be honored if you would at least give me the chance to try to explain why I believe you do, in fact, have the most beautiful and the most perfect mother in the world – a maternal gift of love and sacrifice from the dying Jesus, personally, to you. If nothing else, you may have a new understanding of why well over 1.5 billion people living today do believe they have the Mother of Jesus as their own spiritual mother as well. And beyond Catholics and Orthodox Christians, there are millions and millions of other members of our human family, including many Protestant Christians, Muslims, and other world religions who give a special place of honor to the Mother of Jesus.
