Here is the publisher’s description of the book:
Mark P. Shea’s groundbreaking trilogy Mary, Mother of the Son introduces a modern audience to the Blessed Virgin Mary in a new, exciting, compulsively readable, and comprehensive way.  Shea takes the reader on a tour de force of the Marian dimension of Catholic thought, life, prayer, and practice.  Along the way, you will discover how various misunderstandings of Mary have arisen and how to cure these misunderstandings.  You will gain a clear understanding of the ancient biblical and apostolic fountains from which authentic Marian teaching and devotion springs and grows.  You will learn the origin and meaning of the four great Marian teachings of the Church, as well as encounter Mary in the mystical and prayer life of the Church.
In Part I: Modern Myths and Ancient Truth, you discover the fascinating way in which Mary emerges with profundity, beauty, and love from the pages of Scripture in the light of apostolic teaching. You probe how the gospel of Christ crowns and perfects, not only the Old Testament, but the deepest insights of the great non- Christian philosophies, religions, and myths. You learn how to read the Bible as the earliest Christians did and find out how Mary safeguards the deepest truths about Christ and his Church.
In Part II: First Guardian of the Faith, you will learn about the biblical and apostolic roots of Mary’s title as Theotokos; as well as her Perpetual Virginity, Immaculate Conception, and Assumption into heaven.
