Mary is often a big stumbling block for Protestants and Catholics alike. For Protestants, the Bible doesn't seem to say much about Mary -- certainly not in comparison to what the Catholic Church teaches.
For them, Marian doctrine is unbiblical, if not anti-biblical. As a result, Catholic beliefs about Mary appear to be completely out of step with Sacred Scripture and seem to place Mary in competition with Jesus.
For many Catholics, Marian doctrine is something believed and loved, but why the Church teaches what it does is not altogether clear. Marian doctrine seems detached from the gospel, almost to the point of appearing to an add-on to the core Christian message. What's missing in both cases is a map to show the big picture.
Making Sense of Mary provides just that. Not only does it show how Marian doctrine is taught from Genesis to Revelation, but it also builds the necessary biblical and patristic framework for non-Catholics and Catholics to better understand how Marian doctrine fits together and is integral to God's perfect plan of redemption.
