The Magnificat: Mary’s Song is available on Amazon in paperback, hardcover, and Kindle.
“MY SOUL MAGNIFIES THE LORD” is a song by Mary in the Gospel of Luke, a canticle (or hymn) used in traditional churches during Advent. Here in our book, using THE VOICE BIBLE translation, Mary “lifts up God” as an expression of worship, gratitude, and prophecy.
MARY’S SONG shares the good news of God’s faithfulness to God’s people, a promise given of a Messiah. Each page features a devotional quote with each verse for readers to ponder, savor, and linger over throughout the Advent Season.
Nature photographer Beth Griffith illustrates Mary’s Song with her photography from the Pacific Northwest, the American Southwest, and Ireland. When not behind a camera, Beth is a therapist, spiritual director, avid hiker, and lover of Nature. She has been part of Selah since returning to the Pacific Northwest in 2015, including facilitating Living With the Heart. Beth first began exploring the contemplative life in college, and in it, has personally encountered the One who loves us deeply and invites us into God’s divine embrace. Beth experiences God most intimately through nature, quiet, solitude, and rich conversation with others. It is truly a gift to have Beth’s photos illustrate MARY’S SONG.
SELAH is a welcoming community that PAUSES, ENCOUNTERS the Spirit through contemplative practices, and GROWS TOGETHER toward wholeness and loving others.
