The title, The Marian Option: God’s Solution to a Civilization Crisis, by Carrie Gress, Ph.D. may lead you to think, “Oh this must be a sequel to Rod Dreher’s The Benedict Option.” But it’s not. The volume offers fresh insights to the Virgin Mary’s influence and intercession. Using history, theology and cultural, awareness, Gress brings to light the details of Mary’s role in major geopolitical shifts. The volume is divided into four parts:
Part I – Mary and the Creative Minorities
Part II – Mary’s Geopolitical Influence
Part III – Who Is This Women?
Part IV – Living the Marian Option.
