Book Review: Wholly Mary Mother of God

Wholly Mary Mother of God
by Chris Padgett

Chris Padgett has long been a person I have looked up to as a father of 9, a strong Catholic, and a fellow musician to name just a few. This was my first chance to read one of his books.

Being 129 pages, this book is not meant to encapsulate everything Mary. But this book does a good job of hitting on many topics such as the Immaculate Conception, Marian apparitions, the Mother of God, the assumption, her virginity, and even protestant oppositions.

This would be a great book for people who are not familiar with many of these topics or people who don't see the need to honor Mary. If you are a big Mary "fan", then you won't find many ground breaking things here, but you will come away with something, which is what learning about our faith is about, right?

I loved the focus near the end of the book about family prayer and rosary. The need to be an example to our family and our children and to help create a foundation of prayer is much needed. Many times practical application is what is missing in books such as this, but Padgett brings it back home on this one.
