Item description for Mary: The Transparency of God by Chiara Lubich & Megan McKenna...
Overview What is it that Christians of many different Churches find so attractive about the young Jewish girl who gave birth to Jesus? This book does more than hint at an answer. Chiara Lubich's gospel-based intuitions are a source of new insights for Christians of all traditions. Not only do we see the beauty of a human being who gave birth to God made flesh, not only do we taste the essential poetry of this unique event in history and enter more fully into all it implies, but we are made able to translate this vision into our daily lives. Mary becomes less a person we admire, an object of veneration, and more a source of inspiration, an example on which we can model our lives.

Reviews - What do customers think about Mary: The Transparency of God?
Good insights, but a bit scattered Jan 23, 2010
I'm not quite sure what to make of this book. It's a collection of poetry, narrative on Focolare's development of Marian devotion, and other reflections. The goal of the book, fostering devotion to Mary, is a noble one. However, I don't think it quite achieves this end.
