Totally loved reading this book. When purchasing it, I didn’t know it was going to be so amazing. Such insightful perspectives and well researched and integrated with existing texts. I also received healing as I read. This empowers me a great deal as a psychologist and a Christian woman who attends church weekly. Thank you so much. I pray that every male - especially religious leaders - have the courage to read this and be influenced by it.
I've been seeking a book like this for a while. I was being called to read more about Mary Magdalene but hadn't found a book that met that call. Until finding this one. Thank you for such a down-to-earth, conversational book that brings the scriptures words, messages and essences into such practical and heartfelt focus. To understand the missing inner piece and feel more wholehearted and complete again. I didn't realise but reading the words of Mary Magdalene through this book filled a black hole I sensed but couldn't put word to, til now. Thank you.
When I read about this book I knew I had to purchase it. I love audio so bought that and started listening although it was already getting close to midnight. Such magical writing weaving personal biography, research and ancient lost-for-century texts and it was so aligned with the path I am on. (I am love and see this essential for healing Earth.) I couldn't turn it off and just played there listening, started to drift and would wake at another aha moment. I feel the soul of the writing has been downloaded even whilst I did sleep a bit. I finished with the Appendix meditation at around 7am. I have ordered the Kindle version to revise and make notes. So much gratitude for this book. Thank you, thank you Meggan Watterson.
Mary Magdalene's gospel, through this book, has given me permission to believe in the Christianity - the Christ, I have always believed in but never been able to find.
For as long as I can remember, I have felt that I was searching for something. Becoming a Christian in my early twenties and belonging to a church community was the closest I ever came to feeling as though I'd found it ... but it still wasn't quite right. Something was missing. It was like a giant jigsaw puzzle with a piece missing.
This book is the missing piece of the puzzle for me. 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 struggle to identify as a Christian because you can't fathom a Christianity that excludes women, LGBTIQ+ people, or a divinity that requires us to become less human, this book is for you. If you're a feminist Christian, this book is for you. If you are searching for a way to become more connected to yourself, this book is for you.
I don't have any qualms in saying this book has changed my life. I am so grateful.
Loved the research and intimate engagement with the subject, as well as the visionary implications, the Magdalene gospel has evolved my as a man of how understand I need to evolve, I recently heard an Indian Christi bishop praise the virtues of BHakti devotional practice, the absorption into the presence of the heart of what we call GOD or the good. This possibly of that focus or process has never felt more alive or possibly than now after reading Megan’s personal encounter with Mary M
