While all Christians — and even people of other faiths — agree that Mary is the mother of Jesus Christ, her role beyond this is not as clear. "Why do Catholics exalt Mary?" "Why should she be considered the mother of everyone?" In "Why Mary?", you will come to understand why it is our Christian duty to venerate Mary as both the first Christian and as the mother of our Savior. From Mary's perpetual virginity to her bodily Assumption into heaven, this guide will provide you with explanations — drawn from Scripture and Church tradition — of the four Marian dogmas, as well as Mary's role as spiritual mother of the world. Inside, you'll also find: · Why Jesus gave his own mother to us · Why Mary is called "blessed among women" · What it means to say Mary is the mother of God · The significance of her perpetual virginity · What the Immaculate Conception really refers to · The miracle of Mary's assumption · How the truths about Mary affect the entire Church · How to have a personal relationship with Mary

Howell is director of the John Henry Cardinal Newman Institute of Catholic Thought and adjunct associate professor of religious studies at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana, where he teaches classes on the history, theology, and philosophy of Catholicism. A Presbyterian minister for eighteen years and a theological professor in a Protestant seminary for seven years, Dr. Howell's own reading on the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist started him on a six year journey that eventually led him to Catholicism.
