Fifteen international Mariology scholars contributed to the compilation of Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons. The book features a Foreword and Imprimatur by St. Louis Archbishop Raymond L. Burke, who writes, "Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons is an extraordinarily complete and rich tool for coming to a deeper knowledge of the teaching of the Church on the Blessed Virgin Mary, for growing in Marian devotion and for developing the means of communicating knowledge and love of the Mother of God to others."
The book offers answers to many of the questions that come up in ministry, with a thorough treatment of the Church's long-standing teaching on the Mother of God. The anthology, edited by Dr. Mark Miravalle of the Franciscan University of Steubenville, features 17 chapters divided among four major sections:
1) Mary in Scripture and the Early Church;
2) Marian Dogma;
3) Marian Doctrine; and
4) Marian Liturgy and Devotion.
A Review by Dr. Scott Hahn, international Catholic authority, enthusiastically praises Mariology: A Guide for Priests, Deacons, Seminarians, and Consecrated Persons, saying "Buy this book and make a present of it to your parish priest, the religious sister you know, the seminarian from your diocese, or the consecrated person or educated layperson at your parish. It's a Mariological 'must read' especially for our priests and seminarians."
