Publishers Description For many Protestants the dogma of the Roman Catholic Church in relation to Mary has been mysterious and inscrutable. It has caused them to pull away from Mary and assume that doctrines about Mary are simply false. New questions are being raised. Is Protestantism too masculine? Why are all of its symbols male? Are there neglected positive elements for Protestants in Mary? How is the veneration of Mary related to Biblical faith?
