Publisher Comments:

“Here’s the truth, sister: Mary Magdalene has been knocking at the door of my heart for three years.

“She got squeezed out of Bad Girls of the Bible when I realized I needed more time to research her complex story. Then she was dropped from the roster for Really Bad Girls of the Bible because Tamar and Bathsheba took up more than their allotted pages. (Pushy, huh?) Now I know the real reason why Mary M waited so patiently in the wings: She deserves a book all her own!

“Come meet the genuine Mary Magdalene of the Bible–not the scarlet-draped legend–and follow her one-of-a-kind story of deliverance and dedication, despair and declaration. Like my previous Bad Girls books, Mad Mary begins with the fictional journey of Mary Margaret Delaney, a bad woman–or was it madwoman?–adrift in contemporary Chicago, desperate for someone to save her from herself.

“Once Mary Delaney’s story has prepared our hearts for learning, we’ll leave the Windy City and go verse by verse through Mary of Magdala’s ancient biblical tale, tossing aside modern misconceptions as we embrace the real Mary M.

“Prepare to be amazed by this eye-opening sister who was transformed twice when You-Know-Who showed up and spoke her name. Oh, Mary!”

– Liz Curtis Higgs

Synopsis:

Best-selling author Liz Curtis Higgs uncovers the truth about one of the most infamous women in the Bible in Mad Mary. As in her previous bestsellers, Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible, Liz adeptly blends contemporary fiction with verse-by-verse biblical truth. Drawing from more than one hundred resources, spanning twenty centuries and every corner of the globe, Liz Curtis Higgs brings Mary of Magdala to life, infusing the moving fictional account with genuine emotion, and sprinkling the solid Bible study with wry observations and witty commentary.
Since Mary Magdalene is mentioned fourteen times in Scripture–more than any other woman in the gospels except Mary, the mother of Jesus–it’s time to sort out fact from fiction, truth from myth, and discover, as Mary M did, the transforming power of the risen Christ.
