    One thought on “Hail, Holy Queen: The Mother of God in the Word of God

    1. Richard on said:

      Theologian and apologist Scott Hahn has written this little book in an effort to show how Marian dogma and devotion is not only logical but emotionally and spiritually necessary to fill in what are perceived as gaps in the Protestant understanding of Mary.As a former Presbyterian and a virulently anti Catholic one to boot , Hahn knows all the Protestant objections to Mariology Such as, Isn t praying to Mary idolatry Or Doesn t calling her Co Mediatrix contradict the Scripture verse which says th [...]

    2. Nicola Mansfield on said:

      Reason for Reading Personal edification.When I started my conversion process to Catholicism, I immediately felt the welcoming, warmth and peace of our Mother, the Blessed Virgin Marian theology is something I really wanted to fully understand and this book is truly wonderful in describing Mary s place in the Bible, in the Church and in every Christian s life.Hahn explains biblically why Mary is honoured by Catholics, and her central importance in the Christian Life not just Catholic First he goe [...]

    3. David S. T. on said:

      If I remember correctly from Rome Sweet Home, Scott Hahn has a Masters in Theology from a Protestant college and then eventually converted to Catholicism One of the questions I have from a Protestant perspective is the Mariology of the Catholic Church, sure I ll admit that often Protestants don t give her the respect she deserves, but at the same time I don t understand all of the attention Catholics give her, so to help with my questions I went to this book For a book written by someone who use [...]

    4. Karina on said:

      The cover of this book is so beautiful It s a detail from Botticelli s Virgin and Child with Five Angels Madonna del Magnificat I d like a print of this painting I like this book the most of all the other Scott Hahn s books I ve read so far Maybe I m just getting used to his style It s as he describes someone else s writing compact but rich This book is much better with the chapter headings than Lord, Have Mercy the subsections in chapter are still bizarre at times, but you can get the feel of w [...]

    5. Jack on said:

      A good, basic primer on Marian devotion and why Marian devotion does not equal Marian idolatry I would describe this book as of an inspirational starting point and an informative read for those who are not familiar with the basis of Marian devotion It is not intended to be a comprehensive scholarly work.

    6. Aaron Meyer on said:

      This book really hits the nail on the head with regards to Marian adoration Essential to getting a grip on the Catholic understanding of her position in the Church and God s Plan Really made me think I particularly found the chapter on biblical typology useful Everybody should read this book and after they are finished honestly ask themselves where does Mary fit in in their lives.

    7. alexandra on said:

      Scott Hahn is great at helping with typical Protestant concerns about the Catholic s view of Mary I d recommend this book to anyone who is confused with Catholic Marian doctrine, that and Saint Bernard s writtings.

    8. Candis on said:

      I made the mistake of reading this at the same time I was reading Jesus of Nazareth Jesus of Nazareth is so intellectual that it made Hail Holy Queen seemed downright simplistic But it is still a very good book, especially for anyone interested in knowing about Mary.

    9. Gigi on said:

      Not surprising that Scott Hahn, as only he can do, not only explains the reasons for the Catholic faith s devotion to the Mother of God, but why it IS so important simply because God chose her to be our Mother

    10. Fr. Ryan Humphries on said:

      Hahn is for all of his education credentials a bit of a pop spirituality guy He has the unenviable task vocation of presenting biblical theology to the theologically untrained It s a near impossible task The scientific theological study of scripture is hard You need serious technical skills as well as an attitude of humility which only comes from years of study Trying to present very high level theological insights like typology to someone without theological training is like trying to explain t [...]

    11. Peter Davids on said:

      This is not as deeply moving as Hahn s Rome Sweet Home, but it does contain his personal journey with Mary It is a popular book, so do not expect the explanation level of, for example, The Catechism of the Catholic Church It also has some errors of biblical fact, so it was apparently quickly written None of these affect the argument, but they did irritate me as a biblical scholar That being said, the basic arguments are here the typological argument from the OT, the use of Mary in Rev 12 that I [...]

    12. Carlie on said:

      I liked this book on Mary pretty well I am still hoping to find something provocative and compelling but there were things here that intrigued me I think the idea of Mary as a type of The Ark of the Covenant is cool and believable and the idea of her perpetual virginity being related to a possible sect she had sworn allegiance to is an interesting thought There are a couple of fresh ideas and supports for Marian doctrine and the writing is alright While some of his ideas were interesting I woul [...]

    13. Katie on said:

      This title is a pretty solid overview of Marian doctrine that has always been upheld by the Church, and how it is based on Scripture I liked the parallels that Hahn drew, especially from the Old and New Testaments to demonstrate types of Mary in the Old and how Our Lady is the fulfillment of these types in the New Testament I found the Ark of the Covenant parallel particularly interesting Hahn also does a good job explaining in pretty simple language and theology how Marian doctrines are all eit [...]

    14. Julia on said:

      Hahn explores the Types of Mary in the Old Testament to shed light on her role in the New I wish his explanation of the dogmas was a little positive than simply refuting arguments against her perpetual virginity or the Assumption, but it makes sense with the intended audience of the book for it to be bent toward faith seeking understanding And he did make some convincing arguments.Chapter 6 also helped a lot in understanding the concepts of glory and merit in a Catholic paradigm juxtaposed wit [...]

    15. Graceanne Bowe on said:

      I read the entire book on a flight between Boston and VegasI just couldn t put it down Scott Hahn is truly a brilliant theologian and gifted writer and teacher His writing reveals his patience with the novice to Marian doctrine, yet he is not afraid to dive deeply into theological, Biblical, and eccelsial concepts It is a rare writer who can strike the right balance between simplicity clarity and depthoffering the reader simple explanations without dumbing down the text, yet getting into the com [...]

    16. Michele on said:

      This book was phenomenal It is amazing how one can connect the dots for those that are not theologians Mary is such an important figure in the Catholic world she should be for everyone Scott Hahn, was actually hung up about having to honor and venerate Mary as the Mother of God before becoming Catholic.but because of his questioning he was lead right into her arms, so to say Thank God also for the late Fr Kilimanjaro Healy, who at the time was the one one who had written on the Assumption of Our [...]

    17. Scriptor Ignotus on said:

      A suitable defense of Marian veneration as practiced in the Catholic Church Like Christ, Mary is prefigured in the Old Testament and symbolically represented in the apocalyptic writings Her role is metaphorized in a variety of overlapping ways She is the new Eve, the personification of the Ark of the Covenant, Israel and the New Israel the Church , and the queen consort typified by the historical Bathsheba and the birthing queen of Revelation The central feminine leitmotif of the scriptural orch [...]

    18. Jeff on said:

      I have questions than answers after reading this book I wasn t fully convinced of a lot of things he said, but I was convinced of how important it is for Protestants to reclaim a proper understanding of Mary How it is important for Protestants to affirm that she is truly blessed above many others How important it is for Christians together to affirm the place Mary has in our lives, and how she is also an important guide in our faith, in the sense that our answer should be as hers, I am the Lord [...]

    19. Anna on said:

      An intelligently written book for those of us who want to learn about the significance of Mary in the Roman Catholic tradition The author makes a profound subject very accessible and takes us through scripture to substantiate the points he makes, and I personally found his arguments compelling I particularly appreciated the fact that Scott Hahn is from the Protestant tradition and is clearly a Bible scholar this is not a person who has left his brain outside the church door I would recommend th [...]

    20. Friesca on said:

      When you are talking to most people, you need to make them understand in common words, so you don t need to be an intellectual to understand it, at least you know how to read.This book stands in the middle, it explains in simplicity.Why Catholics never enough thank Mary because she said yes , the position of Mary in Bible and Catholic church, and Catholics don t worship Mary, but give thanks properly, the book explains clear enough.After some of common questions are answered through this book, t [...]

    21. Berbernator on said:

      I purchased this book in hopes of gaining a deeper insight into various marian beliefs Though Hahn makes some interesting comparisons between Old and New Testament teachings regarding Mary, and thoroughly explains key elements of The Blessed Virgin Her immaculate conception, perpetual virginity, intercession for prayers, bodily assumption into heaven, etc , it seemed to be of a third base hitter rather than a home run Hahn s points make sense They re well explained Unfortunately, some seem a bi [...]

    22. Cora on said:

      I enjoyed the exegesis, analogies, history, and commentary, so 3 stars for content However, the writing style was full of cliches and sentence fragments perhaps better suited to a spoken homily, but painfully obvious in written form I wish it had been better edited I was a sympathetic reader and found the good stuff in spite of the writing, but I m sure the book would succeed in its mission to educate both the Catholic and nonCatholic reader if it were cleaner in style.

    23. Laura on said:

      This is a book that I would benefit from reading over again slowly, with a Bible in the other hand There were some points and comparisons made that really got my attention and made a lot of sense to me Ah ha moments Then other ideas were hard for me to grasp and would take much thought and Bible study to fully understand I did enjoy the book I hope to delve into it deeper someday, just not right now.

    24. Don on said:

      let myself be her son by Bennedict, dogma as interpretation of scripture, and so we are children of God by gift of grace, mediatrix as coworker of Jesus Christ, Christians dare to call God Father, contract for property and covenant for kinship relationship, strive for Mary s honor honorable, never to shamed by earthly mother at school or Mary, answers have a lot love joy confidence vs answers, love endearing love, rosary of amazing realities.

    25. Chad Judice on said:

      This book is the most comprehensive explanation of Marian Theology any Catholic or non Catholic should read Mary was Christ gift to us at the foot of the Cross, as we too are his disciples The typological comparisons from the Old and New Testament to show Mary as the New Eve and the Ark of the New Covenant are spell bounding Hahn does it again

    26. Rebecca (whenallotherlightsgoout) on said:

      4.5 starsThis is the first actual book I have read by Scott Hahn I have listened to some of his talks before This book was great I definitely recommend reading it There were a couple sections that were a little confusing Noting to off putting though And the rest of it was very straight forward and easy to understand I look forward to checking books of Scott Hahn s out

    27. Elizabeth on said:

      Surprisingly, I was actually a little let down by this book It wasn t as compelling as some of the other books by Hahn that I have read For some of the other topics Hahn has written about, I have been less familiar with the Scriptural and Traditional back ground I think I am just familiar with this topic.

    28. Kevin Heldt on said:

      The author takes a subject about which many are skeptical and deftly walks the reader through a series of compelling biblical arguments I can begin to see the beauty and, dare I say, necessity of the Catholic Marian doctrines A very well crafted book.

    29. Thadeus on said:

      Absolutely great book It brought together all the right information in just the right order Whenever I started having a question or doubt, it was like he predicted it and provided the answer.I especially liked his story of providence related in the post script chapter.Highly recommended.

    30. Brian Reagan on said:

      Tremendous book that gives some interesting logic on the veneration of Mary Non Catholics ought to reconsider the place they give to Mary, and might find some valid reasons for calling her blessed.
