Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:
An in-depth investigation of the facts and mythology surrounding the historical Mary Magdalene

• Reveals new details about the life of the beloved of Jesus

• Illustrated with rare and unusual imagery depicting Mary’s central role in Christianity

• Includes 60-minute CD of author discussing "The Greatest Story Never Told"

• By the author of the bestselling The Woman with the Alabaster Jar

The controversy surrounding Mary Magdalene and her relationship to Jesus has gained widespread international interest since the publication of Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code, which specifically cites Margaret Starbird’s earlier works as a significant source. In Mary Magdalene, Bride in Exile Starbird examines the many faces of Mary Magdalene, from the historical woman who walked with Jesus in the villages of Judea to the mythic and symbolic Magdalene who is the archetype of the Sacred Feminine. Starbird reveals exciting new information about the woman who was the most intimate companion of Jesus and offers historical evidence that Mary was Jesus’ forgotten bride.

Expanding on the discussion of medieval art and lore introduced in her bestselling book The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, Starbird sifts through the layers of misidentification under which the story of the Lost Bride of Christ has been buried to reveal the slandered woman and the “exiled” feminine principle. She establishes the identity of the historical female disciple who was the favored first witness of the Resurrection and provides an interpretation of Mary’s true role based on prophecy from the Hebrew scriptures and the testimony of the canonical gospels of Christianity. Balancing scholarly research with theological reflection, she takes readers deeper into the story and mythology of how Magdalene as the Bride embodies the soul’s own journey in its eternal quest for reunion with the Divine.

Review:
RELIGION / CHRISTIAN STUDIES

Includes 60-minute CD of the author's lecture "Mary Magdalene, Bride and Beloved" in which she discusses historical and scriptural evidence for the marriage of Jesus and Mary Magdalene.

"Margaret Starbird’s work is of particular interest to me because it fuses the diverse fields of symbolism, mythology, art, heraldry, psychology, and gospel history. Her research opens doors for each of us to further explore the rich iconography of our own spiritual history.”
--Dan Brown, author of The Da Vinci Code

“In this book Margaret Starbird continues her crusade to reestablish the holiness of the feminine, which has been so cruelly stolen by ‘orthodox’ Christian leaders over the centuries. By doing so she also helps to reestablish the humanity of Jesus.”
--John Shelby Spong, author of The Sins of Scripture

The controversy surrounding Mary Magdalene and her relationship to Jesus has gained widespread international interest since the publication of Dan Brown’s novel The Da Vinci Code, which specifically cites Starbird’s earlier works as a significant source. In Mary Magdalene, Bride in Exile Starbird examines the many faces of Mary Magdalene, from the historical woman who walked with Jesus in the villages of Judaea to the mythic and symbolic Magdalene who is the archetype of the Sacred Feminine. Starbird reveals exciting new information about the woman who was the most intimate companion of Jesus--a woman who, for years, has been conflated with the gospels’ other Marys--and offers historical evidence that Mary was indeed Jesus’ forgotten bride.

Expanding on the rich discussion of medieval art and lore introduced in her bestselling book The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, Starbird sifts through the layers of misidentification under which the story of the lost bride of Christ has been buried to reveal the slandered woman and the “exiled” feminine principle. She establishes the identity of the female disciple who was the first to witness Jesus’ resurrection and provides an interpretation of Mary’s true role based on prophecy from the Hebrew Scriptures and the testimony of the canonical gospels of Christianity.

MARGARET STARBIRD is the author of the bestselling The Woman with the Alabaster Jar, The Goddess in the Gospels, and Magdalene’s Lost Legacy. She lives near Seattle, Washington.
