"Beverly Gaventa offers important insights for further ecumenical discussions."
– Raymond E. Brown, Union Theological Seminary

"As Protestant reading, it is fresh and distinctive, demonstrating the link between Mary and the scandal of the Gospel. The inclusion of the extra-canonical Protevangelium of James is illuminating, since it shows how the growing legend of Mary emerges in tension with that scandal."
– Adel Yarbro Collins, University of Chicago Divinity School
