Description

The name of Mary Magdalene conjures images of a woman both passionate and devoted, both sinner and saint. In this moving story, Gordon Thomas brings all his writing skill and investigative experience to bear on the Gospel narratives and the archaeology and anthropology of first century Palestine in creating this compelling and vivid narrative. He portrays a vibrant character searching for more than the traditions of her society allowed a woman of her time, who nevertheless became on of Jesus's closest disciples. In revealing much about the lives of women in first century Palestine Magdalene also poses some important challenges to Christian understanding of the role of women. 'One cannot but admire this amazingly detailed novel...completely credible...cleverly woven.' Methodist Recorder
