From the Back Cover:

WOMEN’S STUDIES / CREATION SPIRITUALITY

In an era that has reclaimed many aspects of the feminine, Margaret Starbird’s The Woman with the Alabaster Jar stood out as a courageous exploration of the scorned and repudiated feminine in the Western religious tradition. But espousing the marriage between Jesus and Mary Magdalene created a personal crisis for this Catholic scholar.

In The Goddess in the Gospels, the author tells how she was guided in her personal search and her ever-deepening study of the New Testament and gematria--number coding of the Greek alphabet--by an incredible series of synchronicities. It was this mirroring of inner and outer worlds that revealed the Sacred Marriage of male and female--the hieros gamous--and led to her personal redemption.

“This book by Margaret Starbird will raise new questions, challenge preconceived ideas, and spark controversy. In the twenty-first century, Christianity needs to reclaim the divine feminine at its heart and celebrate the partnership that Jesus lived, especially with Mary of Magdala.”
--Dr. Bridget Mary Meehan, author of Praying with Women of the Bible

"Margaret Starbird has turned her courageous spiritual journey into a corageous book that will comfort some and challenge many."
--Virginia Ann Froehle, author of Loving Yourself More: 101 Meditations for Women
