Throughout the world, millions of devout followers of Christ look to the Virgin Mary as a sacred figure, a woman to be revered and worshipped. While Latter-day Saints do not worship this chosen vessel of the Lord, we do esteem Mary as one of the most influential people in history. Her faithfulness changed the course of the world, but even so, much detail of her life remains unknown to most. In Glorious Truths about Mary, Mother of Jesus, readers are invited to join distinguished LDS scholar Susan Easton Black on a journey of discovery spanning the life and legacy of this unparalleled faith-filled giant. Discover, through scriptural and historical sources, the compelling look at how Mary, mother of Jesus, has been characterized over the centuries and the true story and lasting influence she has had—this woman whose incomparable example continues to guide and inspire religious women today.

I enjoyed this book, I learned a lot. I dont know if it was really as much about Mary as I thought it would be, but I know the information we have on her is pretty scarce, so that being said, it was a good book. I would recommend this book to women and young women.
Glorious Truths About Mary, Mother of Jesus is a great book to read this time of the year. The thing that I was surprised about was how much historical information was included in this book. It's written so well and presented in such an interesting way you can hardly tell you're reading a non-fiction book. There is also such a spiritual and awe inspiring feeling as you read about Mary and her devotion to God and to her son, Jesus, the Savior of the World. You realize even more how humble and special Mary was and why she was the chosen one to be the mother of God's son.
At only 84 pages this is a quick, but inspirational read. It will leave you with a new love and understanding of the Virgin Mary and her huge contribution to the world. This book would make a great gift for anyone. I'm grateful I had the opportunity to review this and learn more about the life of Mary, her husband Joseph, and of course Jesus's wondrous life and mission.
Isn’t it the perfect time of year to learn more about Mary, the Mother of Jesus?! I was really excited to get to read this book. I’ve always been interested in the women that are mentioned in the scriptures. And Mary is one of the main, most amazing ones.
I loved reading this book! It isn’t long, it’s under 100 pages. The author did a great job making the book be full of information about Mary, yet not boring in the slightest. I loved that she includes where she got her information. I had wondered where she’d get it, because Mary isn’t mentioned in the scriptures a lot. Women really aren’t, in general.
I loved starting the Christmas season learning more about this amazing woman! Make sure you take the time to read and learn about her yourself!
