Dangerous Memories A Mosaic of Mary in Scripture by Elizabeth A. Johnson

Dangerous Memories A Mosaic of Mary in Scripture


Dangerous Memories A Mosaic of Mary in Scripture by Elizabeth A. Johnson

Elizabeth Johnson takes the 13 gospel appearances of Mary of Nazareth and creates a rich, deep Marian identity from this complex mosaic. Dangerous Memories is taken from her acclaimed Truly Our Sister: A Theology of Mary in the Communion of Saints (0-8264-1473-7), with the addition of a new introduction and a short annotated bibliography.


This is a quite outstanding book scholarly without ever being pretentious, faithful without even being sentimental. It is also poetic, with a lovely use of language which makes reading a real joy this will prove an excellent text for undergraduate students I highly recommend this book GRACE & TRUTH Volume 22, April 2005 [Elizabeth Johnson s] long-awaited work on Mary of Nazareth is now finished, and it was well worth the wait...[It is] scholarly, well researched, beautifully written and theologically profound.
