author/John W Lynch

This modern spiritual classic is a touching and human portrait of the woman who was the mother of Christ, drawn with reverence and dignity--a narrative poem of special distinctiveness, universal in its appeal, and written in fluent verse of exceptionally high quality. The book does not draw on legend or easy fancy. Although written before the renewal of scriptural scholarship, the poem's biblical basis remains surprisingly valid. The story of Mary is told completely and with remarkable depth of human insight, and mounts in beauty and power as it goes along, till in the dark, almost unbearably real climax of the pain, the glory, the defeat The long inaugural at Calvary the Woman Wrapped in Silence becomes wholly magnificent in her last Tremendous majesty.
