Interview

Mother of God? A Biblical View of Mary

Date recorded: 22 May 2018 | Speaker: Leonardo De Chirico | Event: ELF Workshop
Topic: Theology

Description

Why is Mary so important to Roman Catholic spirituality? How did the Catholic practice of prayer to Mary originate, and why has it achieved so much popularity? Michael Reeves, President and Professor of Theology, Union School of Theology, interviews Leonardo De Chirico, Director, Reformanda Initiative and Pastor, Breccia di Roma Church, on the subject of his latest book, A Christian’s Pocket Guide to Mary. He offers a biblical account of Mary’s character that contrasts with the Roman Catholic traditions which have developed throughout history, distorting her nature from an obedient servant and worshipper of God to a worshipped saint herself.
