    Bride in Exile - A Must Have Book

    Margaret Starbird is probably the foremost scholar dealing with the sacred feminine. Her grasp of history, theology, and gematria is nothing short of phenomenal. Her first book, Woman with the Alabaster Jar, was a ground breaking work that dealt with Mary Magdalene and her place in Christianity. Ms. Starbird's new book, Mary Magdalene: Bride in Exile, takes the theme to a new level as she explores not only Mary's place within Christianity, but also the sacred feminine within human spirituality. Bride in Exile is full of fascinating new information and speculation on the life and spiritual meaning of 'Mary called Magdalene'. The book also includes an audio CD with a lecture by Ms. Starbird called Mary Magdalene, Bride and Beloved. This book is a must have for gnostics, theologians, and anyone who has a love for Mary, The Apostle to the Apostles.

    An Important and life-affirming message

    Margaret has continued to do her homework. Since writing The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, she has deepened her experience and expanded her research into the sacred union of Jesus and his beloved, Mary Magdalene. It is clearer than ever now, thanks to her persistent quest, that this union was meant to be at the heart of the Christian message. She goes far beyond a simply feminist approach to expose the damage done to our psyches and spirits because of the loss of the feminine figure that could have given us a balanced spirituality based on this union. I especially appreciated her easy to understand explanation of gematria as an established practice in the highest standing among our Jewish and Christian ancestors, not a cheap 'parlor game' that could be repudiated. In her book, the sacred numbers speak, clearly and elegantly, to reinforce her premise. This is important work for anyone who wishes to see history and theology begin to heal and bless the future.
