Item description for Empowered With Mary: Affirming Full Personhood In The New Millenium by Barbara Horton Jones...

Overview
Mary is the archetype of the one who says "Yes" to God, who assents to having God direct her life. Thus, each of us is to be in some sense like Mary-we, too, are to have Christ within us, leading and directing us. Yet, what does Mary have to say to us as women and men poised at the precipice of the twenty-first century? Quite a lot, according to Dr. Barbara Horton Jones, who examines Mary in a modern context. Mary serves as a strong, healthy role model for contemporary women, as evidenced in chapters including "Thinking Mary," "Faithful Mary," and "Maternal Mary." Her relationship with her husband Joseph also yields a model of how men and women can relate in ways that honor themselves and God.It is clear that Mary, as a role model, has withstood the test of time and today stands as a shining example of full personhood.

More About Barbara Horton Jones


Register your artisan biography and upload your photo! Barbara Horton Jones was inspired to write this story after studying the biblical account of Mary, the Mother of Jesus. The insights she gained through the lens of her Christian faith, her training as a psychologist, and her experience as an elementary school teacher led her to imagine how young Mary becomes the person who grows up to be the Mother of Jesus. Dr. Jones believes that girls need to get the message early that God loves them, has a plan for their lives, and blesses their talents. She grew up in Missouri with a Presbyterian background, and has been blessed by belonging to several denominational and nondenominational churches in her adult years. An internationally collected artist, Shelbee Mares has represented Taos, New Mexico, in various festival competitions in addition to being published with the New York Graphic Society and Dina Fine Art. She has lovingly applied her talents to bring Mary's story to life with joyful color and whimsy, inviting children into Mary's world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Empowered With Mary: Affirming Full Personhood In The New Millenium?

Mary a Gem of an Archetype  Feb 21, 2000
This book, using Mary the mother of Jesus as the chief example, deals with the balance of an individual, that is with the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of the individual. This book is not only helpful to young women asking the deep questions of who they are and how they fit in the universe, but is also helpful to men and women of all ages. Mary is an important feminine archetype. It is refreshing to study scripture as psychological data and to find new aspects of Mary, such as inner direction, complex thinking, poetry as revealed by her song, and her sexuality. Joseph Campbell has illustrated the power of story and myth and archetypal patterns. Caroline Myss has stated that archetypes are infinite. Mary is a powerful, numinous archetype in a powerful story that continues to speak in this new millineum. This book reads easily and is sprinkled with personal anecdotes and humor which further inhance the readibility
