Library JournalThis book is a rather unusual venture for Continuum—it is nothing less than a simplified version of Schaberg's more scholarly and demanding Resurrection of Mary Magdalene. In response to the explosion of popular interest in the story of Mary of Magdala in the wake of Dan Brown's popular novel and the movie based on it, Continuum and Schaberg clearly decided that there was a market for a popular version of her book. Gone are most of the scholarly citations, but what remains is more than enough for many readers and reading groups to get a glimpse of what current biblical scholarship and feminist inquiry are really like. For most collections.
