    • Exalted: How the Power of the Magnificat Can Transform Us

      Bible Study Evangelista Sonja Corbitt, author of Unleashed and Fearless, struggled to understand Marian devotion as a new Catholic. But as the popular speaker and scripture teacher began to break open the Magnificat line by line, she found that Mary’s song was not only something she sang but also something she became—an expression of God’s loving and transforming power in the world. Combining her own story with an invitation to engage the scriptures through personal study and “God prompts,” Corbitt will help readers unlock the treasures contained within Mary’s song to her cousin Elizabeth, revealing a song that speaks to each of us in a unique way, calling us to delight in the power of God to transform us and make us into everything he created us to be so we can revel in the fullness and joy of life in Christ. Taking up each line of Mary’s declaration to Elizabeth in Luke’s Gospel, Corbitt casts new light on the inspired text, revealing how Mary

      • rejoiced in anticipation of bearing the Messiah,
      • glorified God for his power and mercy,
      • foretold how God would transform the world, and
      • praised God’s faithfulness to Abraham and his children.
      Corbitt proclaims that we can magnify the Lord as Mary did by imitating her with growing maturity and confidence, ourselves becoming a magnificat. (learn more)
