Discovered in fragments in Egypt in 1945, The Gospel of Mary remains one of the most controversial texts of early Christianity. This translation of Marys teachings, from the original Greek and Coptic, offers a unique new perspective: authors Claire Nahmad and Margaret Bailey utilized "inner listening" to uncover lost material, and they present Marys ideas in the form of a dialogue between the (risen) Savior and His disciples. Most importantly, the volume includes a description by Mary of special revelations given to her by Jesus. Nahmad and Bailey argues that Mary was not just the consort of Christ but the feminine Christ herself, and in their view, the partnership between Jesus and Mary exemplifies the crucial balance of male and female in spiritual and corporeal life. Its an interpretation that uncovers a rich subtext in Mary's words offering wisdom on an extraordinary range of concerns, from the origins of the human race to the pathway to Christlike consciousness.
Claire Nahmad has several best-selling books on feminine spirituality, angel communication and esoteric secrets contained within history. The inner worlds of spiritual percipience have been open to her since early childhood and her intuitive explorations inform her writing.

She lives in rural Lincolnshire in a tumbledown cottage with her cockerel Coleridge.
