Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The greatest challenge to ecumenical dialogue has come not from discussions on justification by faith or papal primacy or even infallibility, but from discussions related to the Virgin Mary. This remarkable assertion is the raeason behind noted theologian and ecumenist George Tavard's historical and ecumenical investigation of the image of Mary.

Mary belongs not only to Christians but to Jews and Muslims as well. In a broad sense she can also be seen in relation to female symbols of the Absolute not as divinity but as divine. Time and changes in dogma have also affected the way Mary is perceived. Tavard has therefore divided his investigation into five parts. He gathers insights from Scripture (Part I), Tradition (Part II), the Reformation (Part III), the Modern Age (Part IV), and World Religions (Part V). Together these perspectives clarify and enhance the Theotokos and her ties with the people of God. George H. Tavard, a member of the Augustinians of the Assumption, professor emeritus of theology at the Methodist Theological School in Ohio, and distinguished professor of theology at Marquette University, was a peritus at Vatican Council II, where he was involved in preparing the decree on ecumenism. He has participated in several international and American ecumenical dialogues and has written extensively on theology and ecumenism.

Synopsis:

This book originated in courses on Mary in ecumenical perspective. The author discusses how Christian images of Mary in theology, piety, dogma, and even in visions acquire new dimensions from being images of the Mother of Jesus in Islam and the female imaging of the Absolute in some of the great religions of Asia. This both relativizes and enhances the Theotokos and her ties with the People of God.

Synopsis:

The greatest challenge to ecumenical dialogue has come not from discussion on justification by faith or papal primacy or even infallibility, but from discussions related to the Virgin Mary. In this five-part investigation of the significance of Mary--not just in Christian faiths, but to Jews and Muslims as well--Tavard gathers insights from Scripture, the Reformation, the Modern Age, Tradition, and World Religions.
