This book presents a thorough and enjoyable examination of the Annunciation to Mary in salvation history. Eugene LaVerdiere, SSS, noted scripture scholar, enters into Luke's story of the Annunciation to Mary as an ardent connoisseur of art might enter into a painting to view it from the inside. Noting the tradition that Luke was an artist, LaVerdiere explores Luke's account of the Annunciation in ways that reveal the Evangelist's artistry as a storyteller, his theology, and his faith. Each of the six chapters at the heart of the book examines a particular phase of the Annunciation story from linguistic and theological points of view. LaVerdiere's scholarship and deep faith lead the reader to a deeper and fuller appreciation of the Evangelist's artistry as well as to a consideration of the depth of the mystery revealed in the scriptural account. Readers will find LaVerdiere's analysis not only thorough and professional, but also enlightening and evocative. Book jacket.
