Mary, the mother of Jesus, is one of the most powerful, influential and complex of all religious figures.
The focus for women, the inspiration of faith, the subject of innumerable paintings, sculptures, pieces of music and churches, Mary is so entangled in our world that it is impossible to conceive of the history of Western culture and religion without her. "Mother of God" is the story of that presence and a book that raises profound questions about the human experience.
