While church tradition bears strong witness to Mary’s role as royalty, to date, the biblical basis to support such doctrine has been unclear. In Queen Mother: A Biblical Theology of Mary’s Queenship, Edward Sri elucidates the common approaches taken to Mary’s role as queen and demonstrates how the “queen mother” theme in the Davidic kingdom can shed light on the presentation of Mary as heavenly queen in the New Testament and in the church. Tracing the “queen mother” motif through ancient literature and identifying it in key prophetic and Revelation texts, Sri attempts to marry tradition with doctrine through a serious engagement with both Old and New Testament readings.
