I find it very interesting that a Protestant mega-church pastor like Joel Osteen would do a film of a woman whose place of importance has been denigrated by his fellow parishioners. It is my hope that Osteen’s crew spoke to scholars from the Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox and Roman Catholic Churches about the Virgin Mary’s real place in Christianity. I look forward to seeing the fruits of this film, but I cannot say I hold high hopes for its quality. We’ll see, though. I’d love to be surprised.
