The Magdalene Mystique

Living the Spirituality of Mary Today

Book - 2006
Rate this:
The Gospel of Mary resurfaced in 1945 in a Cairo marketplace and today many contemporary Christians embrace its message.

In fact, the Magdalene Community at St Brigid's Place in America actually celebrates Mary as mystic and visionary, beloved companion of Jesus and first witness to the resurrection.

Betty Conrad Adam is its Spiritual Director and here offers an overview of the Gospel of Mary; reviews the Church's long history of misunderstanding her; reconstructs early Magdalene spirituality; offers practical advice, prayers and liturgy for living Magdalene spirituality today and more.

This is an ideal book for group study and private devotion. In an age where there are many whacko ideas about Mary Magdalene it is refreshing to find a work that is neither hysterical nor academic, and thus accessible to both Christians and the interested lay person.
