Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary: Unveiling the Mother of the Messiah by Brant Pitre

From best-selling author of Jesus and the Jewish Roots of the Eucharist Dr. Brant Pitre comes this new book examining the Blessed Virgin Mary in a whole new way.

Using his in-depth knowledge of the Bible and ancient Judaism, Dr. Pitre uses his familiar voice to answer important questions about the Biblical understanding of Mary and the Church's teaching on her. This book will explore questions like:

  • Are Catholic teachings on Mary really biblical? Or are they the "traditions of men"?
  • Should she be called the "Mother of God," or just the mother of Jesus?
  • Did she actually remain a virgin her whole life or do the "brothers of Jesus" refer to her other children?
  • By praying to Mary, are Catholics worshipping her?
  • And what does Mary have to do with the quest to understand Jesus?

In Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary, Dr. Pitre takes readers step-by-step from the Garden of Eden to the Book of Revelation to reveal how deeply biblical Catholic beliefs about Mary really are. Dr. Pitre uses the Old Testament and Ancient Judaism to unlock how the Bible itself teaches that Mary is in fact the new Eve, the Mother of God, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.

Praise for Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary

This book is vintage Brant Pitre: clear, persuasive, readable, and above all, inspiring. It causes us not only to know more about the Mother of God, but also to love her more.
– Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles and author of To Light a Fire on the Earth

I did not think a single book could be written about Mary that would excite and unite Catholic and Protestant readers - scholars, clergy and laity alike. What Pitre does with the Bible and Marian typology is clear and compelling. A joy to read, this is the best biblical study of Mary I have ever read. A true masterpiece.
– Dr. Scott Hahn, author of The Lamb's Supper and The Fourth Cup

Brant Pitre takes important theological truths and makes them not only interesting, but exciting. This book will revolutionize your understanding of the most important woman in history.
– Jennifer Fulwiler, author of One Beautiful Dream

Combining rich Biblical scholarship with an engaging, easy-to-read style, this highly accessible book offers a fresh look at Mary in the Bible. Pitre clearly and convincingly shows that the Bible reveals much more about Jesus’ mother than is commonly appreciated today. A must read for every Christian who takes the Bible seriously and is open to what God’s Word has to say about Mary.
– Dr. Edward Sri, author of Walking With Mary

    I have had this book for 3 years. I read it, loved it and learned so much! I told everyone about it. Well. I finally got my husband to read it and he was hooked from chapter 1 on. We are leading a study group with the book now with members of the Militia of the Immaculata! And we are giving the book as gifts to family and friends. Brant Pitre is the best!

    I purchased a hard back copy several years ago and loved the book. It has tremendous insights. I bought the paperback version for my Bible study and Rosary groups. The price was too good to pass up! I would buy other inexpensive paperbacks by this author.
