Reviews - What do customers think about Strange Heaven: The Virgin Mary As Woman, Mother, Disciple And Advocate?
Informative and Broadening Jun 12, 2007
As an Episcopalian I, like many Protestants, have always been rather skeptic of Catholic Marian worship. Strange Heaven directly addresses this skepticism with a study of Mary worship, written in clear layperson's terms. In it, Sweeney addresses the reasons for the adoration of Mary and brings to light many of the non-canonical documents upon which this worship is based. Although the book will not cause me to change my general feelings about Mary, it definitely does broaden my understanding and make me more able to accept worship of the Theotokis when I am confronted by it.
