Elizabeth Johnson takes the thirteen gospel appearances of Mary of Nazareth and creates a rich, deep Marian identity from this complex mosaic.

Dangerous Memories is taken from Elizabeth Johnson's acclaimed Truly Our Sister: A Theology of Mary in the Communion of Saints, with the addition of a new introduction and a short annotated bibliography.
