Jesus spoke to St. John from the cross, "Behold your Mother." And from that hour the disciple took her into his home. Like John we are Christ's beloved disciples, His younger siblings. His heavenly home is ours, His Father is ours, and His mother is ours too. Yet how many Christians today are taking her into their homes? In Scott Hahn’s book, "Hail Holy Queen, The Mother of God in the Word of God," he employs the same accessible, entertaining style as his best-selling The Lamb's Supper, to demonstrate Mary's essential role in Christianity's redemptive message.
Learning to Type
Most Catholics know that the life of Jesus is foreshadowed in the Old Testament but, according to Scott Hahn, typology doesn't end there. Through a close examination of the Bible as well as the work of both Catholic and Protestant scholars and clergy, Dr. Hahn brings to light the small but significant scriptural details revealing that just as Jesus is the "New Adam," so Mary is the "New Eve." And how just as the Old Testament ark was made to bear the old covenant, the Virgin Mary was made to bear the new covenant, unveiling the Marian mystery at the heart of the Book of Revelation and uncovering how it is foretold in the very first pages of the Book of Genesis. He also finds evidence for Mary's Queenship in the story of the Davidic monarchy, which speaks of a privileged place for the Queen Mother and much, much more.
From Here to Maternity
Reading or listening to Hail Holy Queen, you'll gain a profound understanding of the nature of God's covenant family. In His family nothing is missing. Everything Jesus has He shares with us; His divine life; His Father and His mother as well. With great conviction, Scott explores how the many Old Testament types, our deepest human needs, and even creation itself all tell us that a family without a mother is incomplete. You'll discover that the apostles, who gathered with Mary in Jerusalem at Pentecost, and the early Christians, who painted her image in the catacombs and dedicated their churches to her, knew and taught this since the earliest times.
Building on these scriptural and historical foundations, Dr. Hahn presents a new look at Marian doctrines: her Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, Assumption and Coronation. Hail Holy Queen - The Mother of God in the Word of God guides modern-day readers through passages filled with great mystery. Get your copy today and rediscover the ancient art and science of reading the scriptures to gain a more profound understanding of their truthfulness and relevance to faith and the practice of Catholicism in the contemporary world.
