Read an excerpt!

All generations of true believers agree that Mary is blessed among women because she was the vessel that God the Father used to prepare the body of His Son, Jesus Christ, who would complete by His death on the cross God’s plan for man’s salvation. The virgin Mary is blessed among women because she believed in the possibility of this most unprecedented event in all human history…that a virgin girl can give birth without being touched by a man.

Now let us look at the specific words of Elizabeth that have caused a lot of controversy… “But why is this granted to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me?” (Luke 1:43) The traditional churches have built on these words of Elizabeth the teaching that Mary is the Mother of God. So what was the intention of the Holy Spirit when these words were recorded in Scripture?

It is logical that any mother precedes her son as far as time is concerned; but is that the case as far as the relation between Mary and Jesus? Did Mary precede Jesus as far as time? Certainly not! In fact, Christ was eternal with God the Father before creation.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)

Read the reviews!

"With so few informative books focused on the mother of our Lord, it is encouraging that a Biblical Christian has put in countless hours to make more information available. The Virgin Mary in the Light of God’s Word by Dr. Mikhail not only presents valuable information on Mary, it exalts Christ Jesus as the only Way, Truth, and Life!”

“This is a relevant study clarifying Mary’s role and significance that should be read alongside F. J. Moloney’s Mary, Woman and Mother and Jaroslav Pelikan’s Mary Through the Centuries. I highly recommend it as a balanced and Biblical portrait.”
Dr. James Massey

“In this outstanding book, the author Dr. Mikhail and his contributor Dr. Farag have examined the intercessary functions, miracles, and titles ascribed to blessed Mary the mother of Jesus, and they set forth a brilliant defense and description from Scripture of the ministries of the Lord Jesus Christ.

For all who work in the Muslim world, this book is a must- read. It clarifies misunderstandings about the triune God—Father, Son, and Spirit—while giving due and proper honor to Mary.”
Dr. Don McCurry Author, and worldwide speaker; active in international missionary training programs in Colorado and Spain. Former Professor, Fuller Theological Seminary
