SKU: 9781590304952 Categories: , , Tags: ,


Was Jesus’s most important disciple a woman?—A thoughtful and provocative analysis of the evidence by one of today’s most respected contemplative teachers.

“A spirtual masterpiece, and by far the wisest and most profound book ever written on Mary Magdalene.”—Andrew Harvey, author of Son of Man and Hope: A Guide to Sacred Action

“A remarkable invitation into the origins and wisdom of Christianity, through the apostolic witness of Mary Magdalene. Expect a challenge, perhaps more than you’re ready for. This book should change something, as it invites you to deepen your capacity for love, through the witness of Jesus’s beloved disciple.”—The Most Rev. Dr. Katharine Jefferts Schiori, Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church

“It takes courage, intelligence, maturity, but mostly Christian intutive wisdom to write a book such as this. Cynthia Bourgeault succeeds grandly!”—Richard Rohr, OFM, author of The Naked Now: Learning to See as the Mystics See

“Pastor, scholar, mystic…Cynthia Bourgeault is all of these, but never before has she combined them so compellingly and persuasively, and—dare one say it?—so efficaiously as here in this work that lives so close to the center of her own being.”—Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence: How Christianity Is Changing and Why
