Summary

Wall Street Journal bestseller-now in paperback-offers a new perspective on the most misunderstood figure in the Christian story and the key to reclaiming the divine feminine in our lives and hearts.

The Gospel of Mary Magdalene reveals a very different love story from the one we've come to refer to as Christianity. In Mary Magdalene Revealed, available for the first time in paperback, Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson leads us verse by verse through Mary's gospel to illuminate the powerful teachings it contains.
Her gospel, as ancient and authentic as any of the gospels that the Christian bible contains, reveals a radical love that sits at the heart of the Christian story. It tells us that we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed or unworthy for being human. In fact, our purpose is to be fully human, to be a "true human being"-with both a messy, limited ego and a limitless soul. And all we need to do is to turn inward (again and again); to meditate, like Mary Magdalene, in the way her gospel directs us, so that we can see past the ego of our own little lives to what's more real, and lasting, and infinite, and already here, within.
With searing clarity, Watterson explains how and why Mary Magdalene came to be portrayed as the penitent prostitute and relates a more historically and theologically accurate depiction of who Mary was within the early Christ movement. And she shares how this discovery of Mary's gospel has allowed her to practice, and to experience, a love that never ends, a love that transforms everything.
"This book is a masterpiece. I haven't been this excited or awakened by a book for a decade."
- Glennon Doyle, #1 New York Times best-selling author of Love Warrior
and founder of Together Rising
"With deep honesty, soulful artistry, and intellectual rigor, Meggan brings us a picture of the real Mary Magdalene-the one who is alive in each of our hearts-and leads us through how to experience and live from the Christ in each of us in our daily lives." - Robert Holden and Hollie Holden, authors and teachers of A Course in Miracles
