Mary, Mother of Jesus, by Sarah Lawrence
I think this short book is written by a Protestant. The author seems to imply that Catholic veneration of Mary and the saints is idolatry. Her book surveys what the Gospels tell us about the Blessed Virgin Mary, but does not touch on any of the Catholic dogmas about Mary. Lawrence does not even discuss the question of whether Mary had children by St. Joseph. She also does not really reflect on the theological significance of Mary bearing God in the flesh, which is the root failing of Protestant failure to understand Mariology. It is a fairly edifying read in general, however.
As with a lot of books on Amazon's Kindle Unlimited, this is in need of better proof reading to address errors in grammar.
