Mary Magdalene: Bride in Exile by Margaret Starbird

Summary:

Ms. Starbird continues her research into the history and mythology of Mary Magdalene. Main topics include the Sacred Union, the Apostle to the Apostles, Holy Grail, Daughter of Zion, Knights Templar, the Roman Catholic Church, and many more interesting and thought-provoking topics. The book does become repetitive. She does have a gentle way of contradicting the male views. She also brings in other myths for comparison.

Opinion:

I found this book very thought-provoking and an enlightening read. Despite being Catholic, I find the while idea of Jesus being married and having children probable. The book comes with a CD containing and hour long lecture. During the retelling of the Orpheus myth, Ms. Starbird mixes up the names of the Greek and Roman gods. Nick-picky, maybe. But it bothered me. Very nice presentation. I would recommend this to anyone interested in the topic.
