Book Review -- Walking with Mary: A Biblical Journey from Nazareth to the Cross

Written by Edward Sri

In Walking with Mary, Edward Sri examines the key Scripture passages in the life of the Blessed Virgin Mary, taking us on a step-by-step Scripture study of her life. In a very readable format, he illuminates our understanding of the mysteries of her life, providing profound insights.

Walking with Mary is a captivating book that nourishes both the mind and the soul. In 172 pages, Sri gives us a comprehensive analysis of the events in Mary’s life, beginning with her fiat at the annunciation and ending with her coronation as the Queen of heaven and earth. Sri takes us through Mary’s joys and sufferings via his synthesis of the original Greek texts and related Scripture passages, revealing Mary’s virtues and God’s promises to her.

As a result of reading this book, I have gained a deeper, clearer, and a more comprehensive understanding of the events that took place in Mary’s life, her responses to God’s will in her life, and how to emulate her virtues in my own life. This is an excellent read for anyone who seeks to know who the Blessed Virgin Mary really is and to anyone who desires to follow her, as the first disciple of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend Walking with Mary.
