Written by a pre-eminent authority, with brevity, economy and absence of novelty, speculation or merely "metaphorical expressions." Suffused with the spirit of faith and love begotten by sanctity.

One of my favorite book book on the Blessed Mother. Anyone interested in spirituality, philosophy, or theology should read Fr Garigou-Lagrange.

This is a very well written and informative book on Mary and her relationship with those how have a special love for the mother of God. It has many helpful explanations of issue of controversy. For instance the title Mother of God is still disputed by many non-Catholics. I came away with an understanding that true Christians beleieve that Jesus was the result of God becoming man; while false Christians believe Jesus was a man who became god. An exciting book for those devoted to Mary

Réginald Marie Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P. (February 21, 1877, Auch, France – February 15, 1964, Rome) was a Catholic theologian and, among Thomists of the scholastic tradition, is generally thought to be the greatest Catholic Thomist of the 20th century.
