    The Jewish Roots of Mary is a brilliant book to read it clearly explains why Catholics believe in the things they do about Mary but does so in a charitable way It is also written in a way which is accessible to anyone and isn't difficult to read In fact it is a very enjoyable reading experience which begins with the author telling his own story about how he became invested in the topic in the first placeThe book focuses on understanding the New Testament through a first century Jewish lens as the early Church would have done Similar to how the same author showed in his book The Case for Jesus that understanding the first century Jewish beliefs are key to seeing how the synoptic Gospels portray Jesus as divine he shows that the same is key in understanding Catholic teachings on MaryThe book is broken down into chapters where each chapter demonstrates that the New Testament authors are portraying Mary as a fulfillment of an important Old Testament figure or a type For example Brant Pitre does an excellent job showing that Mary is portrayed as the New Testament fulfillment of the Ark of the Covenant He then shows how certain beliefs follow from this realisation For example since the Ark is built of incorruptible wood and Mary is the new Ark the immaculate conception follows Another example would be that since Psalm 132 says Arise O Lord and go to your resting place you and the Ark of your might it follows that since Mary is the new Ark the Lord will assume her into heaven Another thing the author does well is that he shows how ancient Church Fathers held the view he's presenting so that this understanding of Mary is not a novel contemporary invention Rather it is what ancient Christians around the world believed about the Lord's motherThere is a lot said about Mary being the Ark of the Covenant and what beliefs follow from it in the book this is just an example There are other chapters which deal with other types and these are amazing to read My personal favourite is the chapter on Mary being the new Rachel I won't say any except spend less time reading this review and time reading Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary by Brant Pitre you won't regret it
