About this title

Synopsis:

The veil has been lifted.

Discover the Gospel truth about the most myth-understood woman of the New Testament. Was Mary Magdalene a prostitute? An adulteress? The wife of Jesus? An ancient goddess? Liz Curtis Higgs, best-selling author of Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible, combines heartfelt contemporary fiction with extensive biblical research to bring to life the real Mary Magdalene of the Bible.

With her own eyes, she saw him.
With her own ears, she heard him.
With her own hands, she touched him.

Unveiling Mary Magdalene
opens with the fictional journey of Mary Margaret Delaney, a madwoman adrift in modern Chicago. Her moving story, closely paralleling the biblical account, is followed by a verse-by-verse study of the first-century Mary Magdalene and her life-changing encounters with the Christ.
 
“Liz has done it again! What hope and promise this will bring.” 
—Kay Arthur

“The unforgettable portrait of a courageous woman.”
—Rebecca St. James

From the Author:

Here’s the truth: Mary Magdalene has been knocking at the door of my heart for ages. She got squeezed out of BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE when I realized I needed more time to research her complex story. Then she was dropped from the roster for REALLY BAD GIRLS OF THE BIBLE because Tamar and Bathsheba took up more than their allotted pages. (Pushy, huh?) Now I know the real reason why Mary Magdalene waited so patiently in the wings: She deserves a book all her own!

Come meet the genuine Mary Magdalene of the Bible–not the scarlet-draped legend–and follow her one-of-a-kind story of deliverance and dedication, despair and declaration. Of all the books I've written, this one is my favorite. It was previously published as MAD MARY (2001), but alas, people kept asking, "Which Mary, and who is she mad at?!" And so, a new title and a new look, but the same content, the same book.

As with my other Bad Girls books, this one opens with a contemporary, fictional take on the biblical character. Once Mary Margaret Delaney’s story has prepared our hearts for learning, we’ll leave her in the Windy City and go verse by verse through Mary of Magdala’s ancient biblical tale, tossing aside modern myth-conceptions as we embrace the real Mary Magdalene. Prepare to be amazed by this eye-opening sister!
