Unveiling Mary Magdalene: Discover the Truth about a not-so-bad Girl of the Bible Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The veil has been lifted.

Discover the Gospel truth about the most myth-understood woman of the New Testament. Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute? An adulteress? The wife of Jesus? An ancient goddess? Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible, combines heartfelt contemporary fiction with extensive biblical research to bring to life the real Mary Magdalene of the Bible.

With her own eyes, she saw him.

With her own ears, she heard him.

With her own hands, she touched him.

Unveiling Mary Magdalene opens with the fictional journey of Mary Margaret Delaney, a madwoman adrift in modern Chicago.Her moving story, closely paralleling the biblical account, is followed by averse-by-versestudy of thefirst-century Mary Magdalene and her life-changing encounters with the Christ.

“Liz has done it again! What hope and promise this will bring.”

— Kay Arthur

“The unforgettable portrait of a courageous woman.”

— Rebecca St. James
