Description

A new edition of the spiritual classic whose powerful Magnificats continue to nourish and inspire.

Woman of prayer, faith, and confidence—this is the Mary of Nazareth we meet in Ann Johnson's contemporary portrait of the mother of Jesus. Miryam of Nazareth is told in three parts: prayer reflections on the women of the Old Testament; a collection of Magnificats that use gospels events for personal spiritual enrichment; and a description of Mary's life among the followers of Jesus in Jerusalem after the resurrection of Christ. These three parts combine to reveal new depths for understanding Mary as a Jewish woman and the mother of Jesus.
