I first taught a class based on the Joseph title in this series and really liked it. So I had high hopes for Mary because she tends to get her brief mention at Christmas, but without a deeper look into her life. Where I think this title in this series falls short is that it really doesn't need to be 8-weeks long. We obviously don't get a lot about Mary in the Bible compared to other characters in this series. But I think there was an unnecessary pressure to fit this into the 8-week format. Personally, I think this would have been good at 5 weeks. As it was, I eliminated one week. To to be fair, you could take the content and shape it into any amount of time you want, but it's obviously geared to an 8-week schedule. The only reason I mention it is because I'd like to see this series continue beyond the existing four titles, but not with an obligation to make them all 8 weeks or even be character studies. The slides and supporting material are well done and this format could be applied to teaching any topic. So I hope Logos considers that. I'd also like to see some deeper questions included. My class leans more toward very mature Christians and I found the included discussion questions not deep enough (in many cases) for my class to chew on. Again, as a teacher, you could come up with your own, but I would have given this title an extra star had there been something deeper in this area.
