The greatest challenge to ecumenical dialogue has come not from discussion on justification by faith or papal primacy or even infallibility, but from discussions related to the Virgin Mary. In this five-part investigation of the significance of Mary--not just in Christian faiths, but to Jews and Muslims as well--Tavard gathers insights from Scripture, the Reformation, the Modern Age, Tradition, and World Religions.

Author Biography

Fr. George H. Tavard is a member of the Augustinians of the Assumption, professor emeritus of theology at the Methodist Theological School of Ohio and distinguished professor of theology at Marquette University.
