Encountering Mary, Part Five
September 22, 2008 Length: 1:03:07
In the final program of the series on "Encountering Mary," we deal with some of the hymnography and prayers that are a "brick wall" to many Evangelicals. We discuss several prayers in which Mary seems to be given attributes of deity or usurps the work of Christ in the life of the Christian. But, when we go to the Scriptures we see that the hymnography of the Church is rooted in the Bible and biblical typology and scriptural language in a way that even modern Protestants sometimes use in their devotional lives, practice and hymns.
"It keeps me tethered to my newfound faith when I am not at church. As a choir member, it keeps my mind on the music of the liturgy."
