Publisher Description

A gospel, as ancient and authentic as any of the gospels that the Christian bible contains, was buried deep in the Egyptian desert after an edict was sent out in the fourth century to have all copies of it destroyed. Fortunately, some rebel monks were wise enough to refuse - and thanks to their disobedience and spiritual bravery, we have several manuscripts of the only gospel that was written in the name of a woman: The Gospel of Mary Magdalene.

Restores to the forefront of the Christian tradition the importance of the divine feminine and offers a new perspective on the life of one of the most controversial figures in the Western spiritual tradition.

Also known as Miriam of Magdala, Mary Magdalene was considered by the apostle John to be the founder of Christianity because she was the first witness to the resurrection.

Mary's gospel reveals a radical love that sits at the heart of the Christian story. Her gospel says that we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed or unworthy for being human.

In fact, our purpose is to be fully human, to be a "true human being" - that is, a person who has remembered that, yes, we are a messy, limited ego, and we are also a limitless soul.

And all we need to do is to turn inward (again and again); to meditate, like Mary Magdalene, in the way her gospel directs us, so that we can see past the ego of our own little lives to what's more real, and lasting, and infinite, and already here, within.

This brief narrative presents a radical interpretation of Jesus' teachings as a path to inner spiritual knowledge. It rejects his suffering and death as a path to eternal life.

The Gospel of Mary Magdalene sheds new light on his relationship with his favorite follower. The wisdom in this inspiring collection of texts is wholly relevant to our lives today, addressing the questions of good and evil, sin and suffering, and the path to salvation.

The Lost Gospel of Mary Magdalene reveals secrets that have been hiding in plain sight for millennia. The author has done it again, he has fully interpreted every verse leaving no stone unturned, and what is revealed is astonishing. Knowledge that has been kept secret by the church for nearly 2,000 years is laid bare for all to see, thereby ending the greatest deception mankind has ever suffered.

No secret oral tradition as extensive as this has ever been recorded, and none has ever presented a Gnostic view of Mary Magdalene as she is portrayed in this groundbreaking workas a powerful holy woman, the innermost disciple and beloved wife of Jesus, and a Christed woman who is coequal with Jesus in the Christ revelation.

The veil has been lifted.
