Overview

The #1 New York Times bestselling author addresses the controversial questions about the life of Jesus Christ and the women in his life.

An extraordinary message from ?possibly the most famous psychic in the world,?(Mystic Living Today)Sylvia Browne: ?In writing this book, I was amazed to find out that I actually had visions of what was happening...a manifestation of the infusion that I was getting from God. God does work in mysterious ways.?

Many controversies have gone unanswered in Christianity for centuries. Now, told from the unique perspective only Sylvia Browne could bring, The Two Marys focuses on the greatest of those extraordinary unknowns: the two most important women in Jesus's life?his mother and his wife?whose profound influence on him has been marginalized by Christian churches and reinvented out of contradictions, misrepresentations, and fabrications. Finally, Sylvia Browne uncovers the hidden history of these two remarkable women in a story that will challenge the very basis of traditional Christian faith.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Since the publication of The Da Vinci Code, the two Marys in Jesus' life have become subjects of controversy. In this spiritual book, bestselling author and practicing psychic Sylvia Browne discusses the roles of Jesus' mother and Mary Magdalene in the life of Christ. The Two Marys makes audacious claims, asserting, for instance, that Mary Magdalene not only married the Nazarene but also influenced his teachings.

Meet the Author

Sylvia Browne
Sylvia Browne is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Other Side and Back and Adventures of a Psychic. A working psychic for nearly fifty years, Ms. Browne has appeared on The Montel Williams Show, Sally Jessy Raphael, Larry King Live, Unsolved Mysteries, CNN, and Entertainment Tonight.


After 47 years giving psychic readings, 27 years of television appearances and 25 years of paranormal research, countless hours of pro bono work with medical, psychiatric and law enforcement agencies across America--and having published a best-selling biography--Browne's psychic skills and spiritual advice continue to be invaluable to the many lives she touches.


Born Sylvia Shoemaker in Kansas City in 1936, Browne was raised predominantly a Catholic, but also absorbed the Jewish, Episcopalian and Lutheran backgrounds of her extended family. At the age of five, she first learned of her psychic powers when she had frightening premonitions of the deaths of her two great-grandmothers just weeks before their passing. With the help of her grandmother, Ada Coil, also an established and respected psychic counselor and healer, Sylvia came to understand her many psychic gifts, which include the ability to communicate with spirits from "The Other Side."


After spending 18 years as a Catholic schoolteacher, Browne decided it was time to dedicate her life to her passion for spiritual knowledge and her desire to help others with their religious and spiritual quests. Readings in her home with 15 to 20 friends soon grew to gatherings of two or three hundred people in churches and town halls. Before long, she was making television appearances on such programs as "The Montel Williams Show" as well as appearing before standing room only audiences of two to three-thousand around the country.


A student of theology and comparative religion, Browne is also an accredited hypnotist. In 1974, she founded the Nirvana Foundation for Psychic Research (now the Sylvia Browne Corporation). In 1986, she established a church called the Society of Novus Spiritus (New Spirit), which has a membership in the thousands. The society's beliefs are based on Catholic theology, but the church rejects such concepts as sin, guilt and retribution.


Today, Sylvia Browne continues to give individual readings as a spiritual advisor in California, and she travels throughout the country helping others understand how the psychic world works in their lives and how they can use their knowledge of "The Other Side" to harness their own self-healing powers.

    The Truth Revealed

    Anyone with a Christian background has been spoon fed the knowledge that Mary was the mother of Jesus, Jesus died for our sins on the cross and Mary Magdalene was a harlot. But what if those assumptions are incorrect?

    Sylvia Browne provides us with an alternate possibility. Mary set Jesus' feet upon the good road and helped to guide much of his early life, but many of his teachings may very well have been passed down to us through Mary Magdalene, Jesus' first and best apostle. This was an unheard of concept in a male dominated society! Jesus may also have married Mary Magdalene and casting her as a woman of sin seemed to be an excellent way to disguise the truth.

    In addition, Ms. Browne wraps us up in the intrigue surrounding the crucifixion. Joseph of Arimatea was a rich and powerful man in Christ's day, rich enough to insist that Jesus receive the minimal flogging, that his legs not be broken so Jesus could continue to breathe on the cross, and that the condemned man be removed from the cross quickly to increase the chances that Jesus might survive. If Jesus had been cared for in an above ground tomb, he might have survived his ordeal and, indeed, lived on in what was then a much more remote corner of the world.

    Although the Christian in me places some doubt on these suppositions, the intellectual in me is fascinated by these possibilities. I intend to read on and discover the truth. Thank you, Ms. Browne, for lighting a new candle of knowledge in my brain. May it become a roaring flame.

    Very easy to read.

    I liked this book accept that at times I found myself impatient because some things were said over and over again. If she had condensed the book, giving us the much craved information we buy these books for, then it would be half the size. Getting to the point is important to some of us.
