The Meaning of Mary Magdalene: Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity by Cynthia Bourgeault
Was Jesus’ most important disciple a woman? This thoughtful and provocative analysis of the evidence is provided by one of today’s most respected contemplative teachers. “Yes, she is an apostolic leader, but not only this. Yes, she is a beloved, but not only this. Yes, she is a feminine archetype, but not only this. Flesh-and-blood human being, beloved, teacher, spiritual master in her own right: all of these dimensions have to come together to reveal who she really is…”The Book Study meets on selected Tuesdays once a month after Centering Prayer,
from approximately 9:45am to 11am in the Gowen Library at St. Barnabas.
