1 I Gebara & M. Bingemer Mary Mother of God, Mother of the Poor

Here is the first thorough reflection on the importance of Mary by women writing from the perspective of Latin American liberation theology. Gebara and Bingemer offer a vision of Mary in sharp contrast to the traditional. This is the Mary of the Magnificat: a figure who challenges male-centrism, dualism, idealism, and one-dimensionalism. The authors focus on the idea of Mary as "one who lives in God" on the feminine element of the divine, and on the personal factors which color their own perspectives. By delving into the Scriptures, they place Mary in her social, political, and economic context. Reviewing both the Old and new Testaments, they point to Mary as "both heir and one who begins something new." In dealing with the traditions of the Church, Gebara and Bingemer rethink Marian dogmas-an area not only ecumenically controversial but also morally challenging. 196 pages.
