Publisher Comments:

In the Gospels of the Bible there are a few comments about Mary Magdalene here and there. But in the Gnostic scriptures that have been discovered, there are tantalizing hints that both her relationship to Jesus and her role among Jesus disciples may have been profoundly important. Among several schools of Gnostic Christianity, Mary plays an essential role in the revelation of the gospel. Here, for the first time in print, is a Sophian Gospel of St. Mary Magdalene. 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 work-as 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.

Joan Theresa in Sumner, July 28, 2013 (view all comments by Joan Theresa in Sumner)
I was disappointed in this book, it was not what I expected. In fact, I wish I'd sent it back because I won't be reading it. I tried, but it was boring. The most disappointing for me was it's one man's ~ author Tau Malachi's imagining's of what Mary MAY HAVE said, MAY have done, layed out in 173 pages of his blissful thoughts of our Most Holy Mother Mary.
I wanted and expected factual readings of lost Gnostic texts, substantive translations of ancient writings that never made it into the Bible, the Bible as we know it. I'm very interested in those lost or hidden texts, and naively thought, based on the Publisher's Comments & Synopsis, that that's what the book embodied.
But it didn't.
I was looking for knowledge, becaue I have enough imagination, like most people, to ponder on what Mary said, did and believed in!
I wasn't looking to peruse another's creative thoughts, I was looking to learn something new.
All that said, it you are looking for an inspirational book, about one man's dreamings and wishful reflections about Mother Mary, you may like this. This may be the book for you.
A side note, I wonder if anyone else thinks the author comes off as self-important?
I know this review sounds harsh, but it bothered me that Tau Malachi tries to present himself as revered. I understand he feels Mother Mary is his special friend and guide, but, that does not give him a step on the pedastil with Her, or qualify him to put words in Mary's mouth nor attribute actions to Her which he made up.
The key that I missed in the Synopsis and Publisher's comments was "oral tradition" meaning Lore~Tale~Fable. Had I caught that, I would not have bought it.
