"Hamington has written such a fascinating book that I had to put my pen down lest I underline everything." -- National Catholic Reporter ...this work reads well and is worth one's time and effort. It provides an interesting approach to Mary- a provocative work reminding Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox Christians that, despite attempts to crown Mary either literally or metaphorically, diamonds are certainly not this woman's best friend. Michael Whalen, Diocese of Wilmington
"A good overview of feminist problems with promises of Mary in contemporary Catholicism." -- WATERwheel Vol. 9, No. 4, 1996
"Harrington's book is an excellent discussion of both the development of Marian imagery and its critique by feminist theology ... This analysis of Mary is a splendid vehicle for the discussion of the Catholic Church's understanding of women." -- Church History
