I love your simple writing style. Though I'm the scholarly type I was instantly enthused with your book of "fiction" after just the first paragraph. Your story drew me in with its simple romantic style. It feels like a Harlequin Romance, which as a young person I used to devour. I'm sure some critics will give you a hard time for accenting the romantic angle, but I think you are doing a great thing to take Magdalene and Jesus' story and put it into romance form. I can think of so many women (and teenage girls) who are crying out for a book like this. It makes learning about the Jesus-Magdalene "history" fun Making learning fun is the key to everything, in my opinion, and you are doing it with this book It is riveting with a simple elegance, your style of presenting the story. I was smiling and "feeling" with her through every thought and event. It was so cool the way you handled the water into wine story and the calling of Mary, "woman" by Jesus. I find myself wanting to read this out loud to my teenage niece (who lives with me). She is almost 19 and is very into the sacred feminine. I thoroughly enjoy reading your writing Katia Romanoff Director Esoteric Mystery School & Order of Mary Magdalene NorthernWay.org

A Royal Love-story Apr 6, 2008
This is the tenderest, sweetest, most beautiful love-story I've ever read. To those who would implore: "But it's not biblical!" I would reply simply: "It doesn't pretend to be." Read it with an open mind and remember that one of the great mysteries is that our Lord was as fully human as He was fully God. This deeply touching love-story of our Lord and the woman He chose to be His bride will make you weep - it did me.
Sacred Love is Earthy Love Mar 18, 2008
Here we have King Yeshua and Queen Miriam in all the satisfying details of their homelife, their life as parents, their relationship with the other "early Christians" and their community, and most important, in their personal love and devotion to each other. The reader is given a glimpse into the sense of soul destiny and human recognition they each felt as they found each other and began "the greatest love story ever lived", which unfortunately became (as Margaret Starbird says) "the greatest story never told." This Queen Miriam is a Goddess devotee of the Old Religions, which Yeshua respects completely. He includes her in his teaching times, holding her up in equality and expecting the men to do the same. In my own book,The Mary Magdalene Within this same philosophy of Christian equalitarianism was expressed, but not with the lovely earthy details of human life shown to us as they are here. So, when you are tired of the theological speculation of the many, many books about Mary Magdalene and you hunger for a "real story" of the love between the Sacred Masculine and the Divine Feminine,represented by Jesus and Mary Magdalene, seek out C.A. Thomas' book. You might find that you relax into it and feel so satisfied to be let into their daily life and daily love for each other. This book made me think, once again, that we are helping to bring alive a more relevant Partnership Paradigm Christianity for the Aquarian Age. It will be one which offers a healthy-model family instead of the "lone male god" story. It seems to be happening within each psyche that creatively engages with "the greatest love story ever lived". By humanizing the archetypal Divine Couple's love story, we understand that our own capacity to love is divine. How hopeful !

C.A. Thomas has a written a beautiful love story Dec 3, 2007
She was fourteen and he was nineteen when they became betrothed with their families' blessing. Yeshua loved Miriam with all his heart and saw the innocence in her that touched him deeply. Miriam the Magdalene felt Yeshua was different than any other man in existence but she loved him with the whole of her heart, understanding him when his own disciples were confused. Yeshua thought of Miriam as his uncrowned Queen, a Nazarene high priestess who worshipped the Mother Goddess with Yeshua's approval for what is the Father without the Mother.
The disciples especially Peter and his male followers were angry and jealous that at times he paid more attention to Miriam than he did to them. He sat with her when he preached and he was not afraid to caress her in public and treat her as an equal. They had three children, a boy and two girls and Jesus loved his family. He saw the future and knew that Miriam would be reviled, her name an anathema to many people even though she gave much to the world completing the circle of Jesus' life.
Although the basic essence of how the bible describes Jesus is not changed, C.A. Thomas shows Jesus as being as much a man with a man's feelings and needs as he is part of the Divine. He states that Jesus treated men and women as equals. The women played an important part in Jesus' life because as he lay dying at the cross, they were the ones with him. C.A. Thomas has a written a beautiful love story that allows readers to see the times in which Jesus lived.
Wonderful Story in Need of an Editor Sep 12, 2007
This beautiful story explores the human aspect of Jesus. We learn of the everyday interaction between Jesus the man and Miriam the Magdalene who was his wife. The writing leaves no doubt that this historical figure was larger than life and challenges everything we think we know about him.
As a lifelong Catholic I had always felt that there was so much more to the story of Christ than was being told to us by the Church. This story hit home and spoke to me on many levels. The writing is beautiful and fills the voids of the reader's soul.
However, as an author I found much to be desired. Thomas has spent good money having this story self-published but should have gone the extra measure and had it edited. The manuscript would benefit greatly from revisions in punctuation and grammar, not to mention shorter paragraphs. I certainly hope that in future works from this author we are treated to those little extras.
That said, I simply loved this story! Look forward to seeing more work by this author. The concept and story alone warrant five stars but because of the poor mechanics I need to subtract one star.
