As a child, Brant Pitre held a loving devotion to Mary. He met the usual challenges to the beliefs and practices of the Catholic faith head-on, with clear and loving responses, well thought-out using references to Old and New Testament Scripture. There was, however, a struggle. In regard to Mary, he could not easily touch upon a Biblical basis for our beliefs and practices. By the time he began his studies at the University of Notre Dame for his Ph.D., he had begun to entertain some serious objections to many of the Catholic Church's official teachings about Mary, even having let go of the devotions that had been a part of his childhood faith. At Notre Dame, the doctoral program, entitled, "Chrisitianity and Judaism in Antiquity", provided what Brant needed, and his perception of Mary was forever altered, giving him the foundations for the writing of this book.
Begin in the Garden of Eden and let Brant guide you, step-by-step, to the Book of Revelation. He reveals, through Biblical truths, the foundations that support the deep devotion of Catholics to Mary - the New Eve, the Queen of Heaven and Earth, and the new Ark of the Covenant.
