Item Description...
Maggie's Story Maggie Dale is stuck at a dead-end job in a podunk town in rural Ohio. Her life is on the fast lane to nowhere, until a stranger named Joshua comes to town and shows her that she can be a part of something bigger than herself. This contemporary retelling of Mary Magdalene's story will capture young adults ages 14 to 19 looking for a biblical perspective on the character disparaged by The Da Vinci Code.

Marybeth Williams  Mar 8, 2007
Everyone's been through a time in their own lives where struggles seem to never fade and sometimes get the best of you. For Maggie these struggles overcame her life and trouble just kept knocking at her door, well at least until she met Joshua Davidson.
Maggie like a lot of teenagers fell into the wrong crowd in high school. Testing out everything from drugs to boyfriends, which led her to become a drug addict and having an abortion. That's pretty overwhelming for anyone to go through you'd think, but Maggie didn't stop there. She ended up not going to college and becoming a full time bar tender. To her advantage bar tending was an open door to meeting the right people (drug dealers), making new friends (other drug addicts), and keeping her mind off Chance, her aborted baby.
Maggie's now at her lowest point and thinks no one can change her. But to her surprise that is exactly what's going to happen. Her buddy from high school decides to through a big party but not the usual ones where she can score big on what she wants. This time she will score big on what she needs. Joshua Davidson a traveling evangelist wants to share the good news and by chance ends up at the same party Maggie is at.
Watching people's lives be changed for the good can be so empowering. This book is full of inspiration and is at a level that everyone can seem to relate to. Whether you are like Maggie, were like Maggie or know someone who is like her. That is why Maggie's Story seems to engross you while reading it. In my opinion Maggie's Story is an easy read and is great for everyone, but i believe teenagers would enjoy it the most. I enjoyed it and give it two thumbs up!
AMAZING!!  Feb 11, 2007
This is an amazing, and ming boggoling story about the life of Jesus. Some of the reviws for this book say it was unrealistic and that it couldnt have happened. I am 18 and this story showed me the real depth of our fathers love, and forgiviness. I think this is a must read for any teenager who wants to better understand God.
WWJD? What would you do?  Oct 27, 2006
If Jesus had come during our time, what would our reaction have been? We scoff at the Jewish leaders in the New Testament for not seeing Jesus as the Messiah, when clearly all the signs point at him. Yet if someone now comes and says the same things, we label them as a lunatic, insane, unstable.

Maggie's Story takes a modern day view of the story of Mary Magdalene. The book takes her story from the Bible and puts it into a 21st century setting. Maggie is a bartender living a sex, drug filled life. Pete and Andy own a garage shop. Matt is her drug dealer. Jude is a reporter. The setting is set in Ohio. Jesus is portrayed by a former construction worker named Joshua Davidson. (get it? son of David?) The reader is taken through the life of Jesus/Josh through Maggie's eyes and how she feels about him and his ministry. And there is no Da Vinci Code in this story; no sexual relationship between Josh and Maggie here.

I found this book interesting. The characters were young and the miracles and other events are made more relatable and easier to understand. You sympathize with Maggie and her situation.

Yet I kept having trouble fully getting into the story. I found it hard to accept the modern setting without Jesus having originally happen. I realize that this is just a modern retelling but if Jesus didn't originally exist how is it the 21st century? The modern era started after Christ was born. Modern events could not have taken place without Christianity. The US wouldn't have even existed. I also noticed that there was no mention of Josh's birth. I guess that the virgin birth still would be hard to explain even in modern times? Also I know that as Christians that we're suppose not to judge people and this is going to sound bad, but if I saw a bunch of girls traveling with a group of guys and they were all living in the same van together, I might think negative towards those girls. The leader may say he's religious but the atmosphere would look sketchy.

Maybe I'm just looking too hard and reading too much into this. Like I said I did enjoy it. I would recommended this for teens or anyone who wants to know more about Mary Magdalene. It is a thought-provoking read.
Amen To the Last Review! Fantastic!  Sep 8, 2006
Edgy, but with a heart. An unusual take on Mary Magdalene. Thought-provoking and ultimately a book which echoes the heart and soul of true Christianity.
Fantastic  Apr 2, 2006
He heals the sick and feeds the poor. He raises the dead and has charisma that attracts people to him from all walks of life. Those in his inner circle believe he is the Son of God. This is not Jesus Christ; instead this is Josh Davidson. Christ never came to earth as claimed by those in the first century, but now God sends his Son to protect and preach to the masses.

Maggie is a sinner who uses sex, drugs, and alcohol to dull her pain. She once tried suicide but failed and now just tries to numb her anguish. When Josh's path crosses hers, she walks away from him, but then returns to him as she is drawn to him and his message of forgiveness. Maggie becomes a devoted follower preaching with him in Ohio. She knows deep in her heart that Josh forgave her sins even if she cannot forgive them herself. Yet she is the one who sees him first when he rises from the dead and when the time is right she will be one of hiss followers to spread his message.

Although this book is aimed at young adults, older readers will enjoy reading Maggie's story immensely. Everything that happened to Jesus happens to Josh in the twenty-first century. Josh's message spreads around the world rather quickly because of advanced communications, which also means he is a threat to the powerful. Maggie represents a modern day Mary Magdalene as Dandi Daley Mackall makes the case that the Son of God could have come at any time and attracts the same followers and detractors. MAGGIE'S STORY will be cherished by readers.
