Woman of the World

The Other Faces of Mary
by Ann Ball
Crossroad, 2004
(183 pages, $14.95, paperback)

reviewed by David B. Kopel

Ann Ball’s The Other Faces of Mary presents pictures and texts of two dozen modern Marian devotions around the world. It skips past the globally known devotions such as Lourdes and Fatima to concentrate on ones barely known beyond their homelands. What she reveals about modern Marian piety is almost certain to surprise readers, regardless of their views about Mary herself.
