Review Text

  • By G. Bowtell on 29 December 2011

    I re-read "Hail Holy Queen" this year, finishing it just in time for the Solemnity of the Assumption, and I was glad I did. I was reminded not only of why as Catholics we celebrate this feast but realised again the importance of Mary for Christian doctrine and for Christian living. For example, Scott Hahn demonstrates how a defence of the Mary's virginity protects us and the Church from heresies that would lead some to question either the divinity of Christ, or His humanity. He explains also what Lumen Gentium states: "Redeemed by reason of the merits of her Son and united to Him by a close and indissoluble tie, she is endowed with the high office and dignity of being the Mother of the Son of God, by which account she is also the beloved daughter of the Father and the temple of the Holy Spirit."With reference to St Athanasius, Prof. Hahn also reveals how through Mary "The Son of God became a son of man, so that sons of men might become sons of God." As a convert to Catholicism I can readily understand the reluctance that non-Catholics have in accepting the place of honour and the veneration that we give to Mary. Prof. Hahn too understands "Mary-phobia" first-hand as he was a Protestant pastor used to preaching against Catholicism, but he makes the point very clear indeed - that although Mary is recorded by Sacred Scripture as saying very little, Sacred Scripture has, in fact, much to say about Her.The book is written in the same easy to follow style that characterises all of Scott Hahn's books, making Theology accessible without over simplification, adding a personal touch without mawkishness. It is also a book that you can read with a Bible on your lap for reference, thus assisting in a deepening love and understanding of and for Sacred Scripture. It is perfect for individuals to learn more about the Marian aspects of the Catholic faith and would serve well as a main text for a study group.

    This is the first book by Scott Hahn that I have read and I was delighted by the 'easy' read it was. Despite the depth of the subject - the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God and us all - Scott Hahn made this an enjoyable and thought provoking read.As a sripture professor Scott Hahn used the Bible a great deal linking Mary with the Old and New Testaments. He did it in such a way that anyone interested in the subject, beginner or 'old hand', would get some new angle out of it.He very delicately handled the subject and practice of praying the Rosary that would not cause any offence to those who feel alien to this practice. Having been there himself he was able to answer the many questions about this seemingly repetitive form of prayer.

    Scott Hahn has climbed the mountain on behalf of all of us who, whilst believing in the dogmas of the Blessed Virgin's Immaculate Conception and her Assumption body and soul into heaven, could not easily support our faith in these interpretations of scripture with an accurate understanding of how and why they naturally arise from the Bible and the teachings of the Church Fathers. As a former evangelical Protestant minister he is well versed in all the arguments used by Protestant Christians to castigate the One True Holy Roman Catholic Church for its veneration and deep love for the Virgin Mary. In searching for the truth about Mary, Scott found all the answers to his questions were to be found in Roman Catholic beliefs and so he made the courageous step of becoming a Catholic.His writing style and arguments are elegant and simply explained with good-natured humour and an obvious enthusiasm of his subject, so that this book may be read by anyone - a Doctorate in Theology is not required! If the reader comes with an open heart and an open mind and a true desire to know the truth about Our Lady and how she was elevated to the position of Queen of Heaven by the will of her Divine Son, then this book's enormous riches will not disappoint.It is a real achievement to have made the explanation of the profound, deep and holy mysteries of Our Lady's role in Christ's redemptive work accessible to everyman.

    Scott Hahn reminds us early in HAIL, HOLY QUEEN that according to the Second Vatican Council both Christ and Scripture were given to us by God for the sake of salvation. The author also agrees with Saint Augustine that the New Testament is concealed in the Old Testament which is often revealed in the New testament. For instance there are many parallels which can be drawn between Genesis and the Gospel of John.Hahn shows us one way to look at Scripture is as the story of God's preparation for and completion of His self-revelation in Jesus Christ. Mary's role is an integral part of this story. Jesus Christ is the New Adam and Mary is the New Eve.Hahn's books are much easier to appreciate if we are already familiar with the Bible as a whole in addition to the individual readings we absorb as part of the Mass.The book ends with a concise history of the rosary and an explanation of its enduring value in the prayer lives of Catholics.

    An excellent summary of the Catholic Churches teachings about Mary, written in Prof. Hahns usual witty and relaxed style. Prof. Hahn explains how Mary's role fits in God's covenantal plan of salvation and shows how honouring Mary doesn't detract from worship of God, but instead honours Him - because Mary is his work of creation par excellence. A must read for both Catholics and protestants who wish to understand the catholic churches marian teachings.
