Hail, Holy Queen is a fresh and enlightening new perspective on Mary, Mother of God, and her importance in the Christian faith. In this text, Catholic scholar and apologist Scott Hahn employs an accessible, entertaining style to argue for Mary’s essential role in Christianity’s redemptive message. Most Christians know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed throughout the Old Testament. Through a close examination of the Bible, as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Hahn brings to light the small but significant details showing that just as Jesus is the “New Adam,” so Mary is the “New Eve.” He unveils the Marian mystery at the heart of the Book of Revelation and reveals how it is foretold in the very first pages of the Book of Genesis and in the story of King David’s monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the mother of the king. Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Hahn presents a new look at the Marian doctrines: Her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption, and Coronation. As he guides modern-day readers through passages filled with mysteries and poetry, Hahn helps them rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the Scriptures and gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of religion in the contemporary world.

In simple and straightforward prose, Dr. Scott Hahn’s Hail, Holy Queen explains the place of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Christian piety. Eminently readable and insightfully structured, Hail, Holy Queen examines and analyzes the biblical and theological foundations of Marian devotion with insight and deep faith.

—Edward Cardinal Egan, Archbishop of New York

I highly recommend this splendid work of Scott Hahn. I believe that so many people will find Hail, Holy Queen very helpful in discovering and re-discovering Mary. The book’s style is simple and elegant. Its message, in fidelity to Vatican II, is crystal-clear in concentrating our attention on Mary, the Mother of God, in her relationship to Christ and His Church.

—Most Reverend Justin Rigali, Archbishop of St. Louis

In his inimitable sparkling style Scott Hahn serves up a feast of Scripture, theology, and spirituality for Christians—Catholic and Protestant alike—for understanding the role of Mary in God’s purposes.

—Fr. George T. Montague, S.M., professor of Scripture, St. Mary’s University, San Antonio, Texas

Queen Mother: A Biblical Theology of Mary's Queenship

  • Author: Edward Sri
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing

While church tradition bears strong witness to Mary's role as royalty, to date, the biblical basis to support such doctrine has been unclear. In Queen Mother: A Biblical Theology of Mary’s Queenship, Edward Sri elucidates the common approaches taken to Mary’s role as queen and demonstrates how the “queen mother” theme in the Davidic kingdom can shed light on the presentation of Mary as heavenly queen in the New Testament and in the church. Tracing the “queen mother” motif through ancient literature and identifying it in key prophetic and Revelation texts, Sri attempts to marry tradition with doctrine through a serious engagement with both Old and New Testament readings.

Sri’s scriptural examination of Mary’s queenship in light of the Davidic kingdom tradition is a welcome antidote against frequent unidimensional historical reductions of Mary’s person and role. Mary is not a shadowy figure frozen in the distant past but the ‘eschatological icon’ of salvation history.

—Johann G. Roten, SM, director, International Marian Research Institute, University of Dayton

The biblical queen-mother tradition is of paramount importance for our contemporary understanding of Our Lady’s dynamic role of spiritual queen and advocate for all humanity. Edward Sri offers an outstanding synthesis of this Gebirah or ‘Great Lady’ biblical revelation.

—Mark Miravalle, STD, professor of theology, Franciscan University of Steubenville

This book intelligently deepens one’s devotion to Mary, the Queen of Heaven, the Mother of Jesus, and the Mother of the Church.

—Joseph Henchey, CSS, professor emeritus, Pontifical North American College, Rome

Edward Sri is an assistant professor of theology at Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas. He is the author of several books and articles on Scripture and apologetics, including Mystery of the Kingdom: On the Gospel of Matthew and The New Rosary in Scripture: Biblical Insights for Praying the 20 Mysteries.

The Catholic Mary: Quite Contrary to the Bible?

  • Author: Dave Armstrong
  • Publisher: Dave Armstrong
  • Publication Date: 2010
  • Pages: 193

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Theology and beliefs concerning the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of our Lord Jesus, have long been contentious issues between Catholics and Protestants. The latter often maintain that “the Catholic Mary” is a corruption of the true biblical Mary: the humble and lowly handmaiden.

Catholic apologist Dave Armstrong, a former evangelical Protestant, shows how the “Catholic” and the “biblical” Mary are indeed one and the same—there's no conflict. Armstrong tackles controversial topics such as Mary's Immaculate Conception, Assumption, perpetual virginity, the term of “spouse of the Holy Spirit,” the request for Mary to intercede, the Rosary, and the flowery and seemingly excessive devotional language of the saints. And he considers the idea of Mary as distributor of God’s grace and salvation—what St. Paul and indeed all of us are meant to be. Armstrong provides biblical and rational support for all Catholic Marian beliefs and practices, making them accessible, understandable, and articulable by all who accept the inspiration of the Bible.

Dave Armstrong is a Catholic author and apologist, who has been actively proclaiming and defending Christianity for more than 25 years. Formerly a campus missionary and a Protestant, Dave was received into the Catholic Church in 1991 by the late and well-known catechist and theologian, Fr. John A. Hardon, SJ.

Catholic for a Reason II: Scripture and the Mystery of the Mother of God, 2nd ed.

  • Editors: Scott Hahn and Leon J. Suprenant
  • Edition: 2nd
  • Publisher: Emmaus Road Publishing
  • Publication Date: 2004
  • Pages: 227

Catholic for a Reason II explores the mystery of Mary, the Mother of God, through the personal study and reflection of nine well-known Catholics—Scott Hahn, Jeff Cavins, Tim Gray, Curtis Martin, Kimberly Hahn, Edward Sri, Curtis Mitch, Sean Innerst, and Leon Suprenant. The result is a moving tribute and convincing testimony that demolishes common misconceptions about Catholic teaching on the Virgin Mary. The truth is that Catholics do not worship Mary. Catholic teaching on Mary is scriptural. And the Rosary and other Marian prayers are not vain repetitions.

You’ll learn why the Catholic Church teaches that Mary was immaculately conceived, remained always a virgin, and was assumed body and soul into heaven. You’ll understand how Mary is the fulfillment of Old Testament images. Most of all, you’ll discover what it means to be a child of Mary in the Church.

Catholic for a Reason II embraces the noble task of propagating the Church’s teaching regarding the Mother of God in the hope of educating minds to know her better and moving hearts to love her more.

—Charles M. Mangan, priest, Diocese of Sioux Falls, SD

Mariology: A Dogmatic Treatise on the Blessed Virgin Mary

  • Author: Joseph Pohle
  • Publisher: B. Herder
  • Publication Date: 1919
  • Pages: 185

Although Mariology has been a flashpoint of contention between Catholics and Protestants, Mary plays an important role in doctrine, and should be studied for no other reason than she is the mother of Jesus.

In this short volume, Pohle exhibits a historical and theological mastery of the issue in his explanation of the immaculate conception, the complex relationship between Mary and original sin, and the perpetual virginity. He also draws from Scripture and tradition to relate the eternal person of Christ to the temporal nature of his conception and birth—thereby thrusting Mary into the theological spotlight. Protestants will find Pohle’s theological discourse especially useful for understanding an important, yet controversial dogma. This volume concludes with a lengthy appendix on the veneration of saints, relics, and images.

Joseph Pohle (1852–1922) studied in Trier, Rome, and was ordained as a priest in 1878. He served as a professor in Baar, Switzerland from 1881 to 1883, as professor at St. Joseph’s College in Leeds, England from 1883 to 1886, and as professor of philosophy in Fulda from 1886 to 1889. In 1889, he moved to America to teach at the newly-founded Catholic University. Pohle returned to Europe in 1894, teaching at Münster and then Breslau, where he served as professor of dogma, and wrote his Dogmatic Theology. He was also a frequent contributor to the Catholic Encyclopedia.

A Treatise on the True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin

One of the most influential modern books on Roman Catholic Mariology, True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin expands and develops the “to Jesus Christ through Mary” approach to spirituality. St. Louis de Montfort explains the theological importance, the practices, and the content of devotion to the Blessed Lady—and the ways in which these practices bring us closer to her Son, Jesus.

Reading [True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin] has marked a decisive turning point in my life. . . . At that very moment this unique treatise came into my hands, one of those books which it is not enough ‘to have read [once].’ I reread it constantly and certain passages in succession. I soon realized that the book contained something fundamental over and above its baroque style. The result was that the devotion to the Mother of Christ of my childhood and my adolescence gave way to a new attitude, a devotion that welled up from the depths of my faith, as at the very heart of the Trinitarian and Christological reality.

  • Author: John Paul II
  • Publisher: Libreria Editrice Vaticana
  • Publication Date: 1987

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Pope John Paul II promulgated Redemptoris Mater (The Mother of the Redeemer) in 1987. The encyclical is a complex exploration of Mariology. The first section, “Mary in the Mystery of Christ,” explains Mary's role in the divine plan of salvation. The second section, “The Mother of God at the Center of the Pilgrim Church,” discusses Mary's continuing role as the perfect “mirror” of faith. The pope explains, Mary's journey of faith becomes one with that of the Church at Pentecost. “Thus, from the very first moment, the Church ‘looked at’ Mary through Jesus, just as she ‘looked at’ Jesus through Mary.” In the third and final section, “Maternal Mediation,” the pope explores Mary as Mediatrix, as the intercessor in unity with both her Son and the pilgrim Church. “Thus, throughout her life, the Church maintains with the Mother of God a link which embraces, in the saving mystery, the past, the present, and the future, and venerates her as the spiritual mother of humanity and the advocate of grace.”
