Synopsis:

Mathewes-Green opens up “The Gospel of Mary” to see her early life, offering a window into her centrality to the Christian Faith in new and sometimes startling ways. Christians have alternatively raised the status of the mother of Jesus to that of her Son or ignored her entirely. Behind all of the images is a girl who grew up to be the mother of Christ.

  • How did the first Christians view her?
  • What were the commonly understood facts about the Blessed Mother’s early life, before the Annunciation?
  • How did Mary, the mother of Jesus, become the Theotokos

This book gives some surprising insights.

From the Inside Flap: Taking us right to the core of Christian faith, Mathewes-Green offers a glimpse of the Church one thousand years ago. Looking at three ancient texts, she explores the historic background and theological and cultural questions that the documents raise.

"The Gospel of Mary" is a humbly told story of the Virgin's life from her conception to the birth of Jesus, put into written form as early as A.D. 150. The second text is a brief prayer to Mary found in Egypt on a scrap of papyrus and dated to the following century. It is the oldest known prayer to Mary. The third text, "The Annunciation Hymn of Rejoicing," was written by the Syrian poet Romanos in about A.D. 520 and is considered one of the finest examples of Eastern Christian poetry. This graceful hymn is still sung in Eastern Orthodox churches throughout the world today.

Warmly devout, historically detailed, and rich with spiritual applications for today, The Lost Gospel of Mary is the latest gem from Frederica Mathewes-Green. The fruit of her whole-hearted faith and careful study is an intimate glimpse of the extraordinary mother of our Lord.
