Item description for The Magdalene Mystique: Living the Spirituality of Mary Today by Betty Conrad Adam...

Overview
The early Christians formed communities to follow the risen Jesus. One such community wrote down its gospel story, but sometime in those early years, the Gospel of Mary Magdalene disappeared. In 1945, it surfaced in the Cairo marketplace, and today, contemporary Christians are embracing the message of this Magdalene Gospel. The Magdalene Mystique invites readers into the spiritual life of an actual community that celebrates Mary Magdalene as mystic and visionary, beloved companion of Jesus, and first witness to the resurrection., Following Mary's gospel, the community seeks to embody an ethos of equality and justice. With historic background based on the scholarship of prominent researchers including Karen King and Jane Schaberg, plus prayers, liturgies, and real-life stories, this is a powerful book for group study and private devotion.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Magdalene Mystique: Living the Spirituality of Mary Today?

Golden Strands  Dec 21, 2006
In this powerful book Betty Adam weaves a spiritual tapestry that combines the golden threads of lost mystical traditions with the brilliant red that symbolizes the spirit's fire and Mary Magdalene's iconographic presence. Here are the makings of a rich inner journey toward a contemporary mystical union with the divine light and energy that suffuses our humanity and forges relational bonds among the world's peoples and religions. Adam displays her gift for internalizing texts and scholarship in a crucible of exploration and community to distill an authentic spirituality for twenty-first century seekers.
 
The Most Understandable Story Yet  Dec 14, 2006
Betty Adams brings the spirit and the person of Mary Magdalene alive in her book while also taking us through an understandable and often horrifying historical journey that helps to explain the many misconceptions surrounding this Mary. In the Magdalene Mystique we find a real person that invites us to be one of the children of true humanity; we also find answers that can not be found in traditional doctrines or dogma. This book inspires, brings hope and powerful knowledge. We no longer are "bound" by limited thinking as we learn to soar in a new found freedom and love. Read this book, you'll discover an opening to new pathways...and maybe even yourself.
 
A gentle, thoughtful examination of a journey to Magdalene spirituality.  Dec 6, 2006
The Magdalene Mystique tells of Betty Adam's journey into living the spirituality exemplified by Mary Magdalene as it is written of in the Gospel of Mary as well as other texts that were excluded from the Bible. Adam's gently, unassuming style offers the reader the opportunity to see into her heart and the heart of the Magdalene Community in Houston, TX, without feeling "preached to." The inclusion of four different translations of the Gospel of Mary, an ancient text scholars believe to have been written in honor of Mary Magdalene, is an invaluable resource.
