Description

The narrative spins out in poetic ecstasies, interweaving personal anecdotes with scripture and myth and personal reflections. Now it seems especially timely as a renewed debate rages over the role women should play in the Church.

A gospel, as ancient and authentic as any of the gospels that the Christian bible contains, was buried deep in the Egyptian desert after an edict was sent out in the 4th century to have all copies of it destroyed. It frequently brought me to tears, as I was resonating so deeply with the beautiful messages shared within.

While I get that part of the message she's trying to share is an interconnectedness in our human experience, it gets a little old to read about the significance she finds in every place she goes and in colors and numbers and eggs and thread and people and childbirth and tattoos and aura readings and yoga and headlamps and skinny dipping and shapes and articles of clothing and. Yet, King argues, ‘We know that in the early centuries and throughout Christian history, women played prominent roles as apostles, deacons, preachers, and prophets. However, for me, the glaring omission from this text is the scripture in full (as what has been found) either at the start of the book, or the end.

It was recommended by a friend whose perspective on life, love of all creatures, acceptance, curiosity, empathy, calm and action I greatly respect. She mentions one of the teachings of Mary Magdalene and Jesus, and then she explains it in the context of her own life. As the calendar turned to December, I thought it would be the perfect time to read something about Christianity, and Meggan Watterson’s book found its way to my nightstand. She states several times she is not a Christian, okay other views are good to have, but with that bias she then states we are all good. And she shares how this discovery of Mary's gospel has allowed her to practice, and to experience, a love that never ends, a love that transforms everything.and have often stated this is some man’s interpretation only to be challenged and ostracized because ‘You don’t believe’ and ‘will go to hell’ and so on.

I loved rethinking the role of women during Christ's life and early Christianity, a piece of history that is largely lost in our canonized Bible. Meggan Watterson is the spiritual teacher to spiritual teachers and this book is a road map to the heart of Christ’s message.

Or to be more accurate - Mary Magdalene's gospel is the missing piece, but Meggan Watterson's interpretation of the gospel showed me the way it fit. If you’ve ever felt like there’s a big hole in the story of Jesus Christ – and indeed Christianity (like I did) – you will want to add Mary Magdalene Revealed to your bookshelf right away.

I first listened to the sample, and it is NOT from the book at all -- it is not a scene from a later chapter, or a sample of a page. If you have even a fleeting interest in spirituality or feminism, or you’re ready to challenge the old ideas of religion and look at them - especially Christianity - from a perspective that feels like it includes you, then this is definitely a book to read. Meggan facilitates the REDLADIES—a community of radical love that lets her preach about female saints, mystics, gurus, and poets who inspire and teach us to live in service of love. I highly recommend it to anyone who is open to learn all about the feminine and the truth that humanity forgot for millennia that we have everything we ever need within ourselves. I have also removed the crucifix from my study wall and hung it more centrally so as to daily get beyond it with Mary and into New Life of love and heartfelt compassion.Joan of Arc – “She listened to the voice of love inside her, and she believed it enough to let it guide her. In fact, our purpose is to be fully human, to be a 'true human being' - that is, a person who has remembered that, yes, we are a messy, limited ego, and we are also a limitless soul. I feel like I have gorged this book on a day I was freed of my mothering duties, allowed myseld to be still and discovered the knowing I always knew was true. Her translation of "kyrie eleison" as "Lord, Jesus Christ, son of God, have mercy on me" reads into it far too much: it literally just means "Lord, have mercy".
