    The REAL Mary Magdalene Has Been Unveiled!

    Liz Higgs has done the research and has unveiled the real Mary Magdalene! Liz Higgs points out in her very thorough book, that Mary Magdalene has been improperly portrayed throughout our history and culture. She has sifted through the tangled mess and has carefully unraveled the many stories that has become Mary Magdalene. Pop culture at it's worst, has made Mary Magdalene Jesus' lover. In one word from Mary's mouth, "Teacher!," the true nature of their relationship is put out front and center! Liz Higgs writes like she's sitting across the table from you talking girlfriend to girlfriend. Her clever modern story that parallels the gospel telling of Jesus' ministry and his relationship to Mary Magdalene is as insightful as it is enjoyable. She brings the times they lived in in full perspective and what the roles of Mary Magdalene, and the other women who followed Jesus were. I found the book to be fascinating as well as informative. You will never see Mary Magdalene in the same way again!

    ascinating

    The Story¿. On an icy Chicago day, Pastor Jake Stauros of Calvary Fellowship sees the desperate mumbling woman in her Goodwill wardrobe struggling to walk so he offered her help. Mary Margaret Delaney pretends to ignore his kindness and just keeps slipping, and incoherently saying ¿Luna¿. Jake truly wants to help her, but wonders how to reach Mary Margaret without a miracle as she acts as if demons possess her mind, and soul. Yet with God¿s help he has assisted several rag tag muffins now part of the Calvary Fellowship. He will continue to pray for Mary Margaret, show her she is not alone, and optimistically hope she will join them. Mary Margaret¿s story is a brilliantly written modern day parable paralleling that of Mary Magdalene so that readers can place a contemporary context on perhaps the bible¿s ¿baddest girl¿..................................... ¿The Study¿. Will the real Mary Magdalene stand up? Was she a courageous individual who followed Jesus and quickly became more than just a believer, but the person who was honored with being the first to see his reappearance? Was she a prostitute, Jesus¿ earthly lover or was that bad PR by a male dominated medieval church? Was she possessed by demons? Liz Curtis Higgs answers all the above and more with a thought provoking, well researched look at the New Testament. Using specific references that are easy to follow, Ms. Higgs furbishes a powerful intriguing case of who was the real Mary Magdalene............................... UNVEILING MARY MAGDALENE is a terrific two-part combo that provides a wonderful novelette with an insightful biblical study that enables the audience to come away with a full understanding of one of the bible¿s ¿goodest¿ girls..........................
