The publication of Dan Brown's controversial and bestselling novel, The DaVinci Code, brought to life a spirited debate concerning Mary of Magdalene's true role in the life of Jesus. So who was the real Mary of Magdala--a devoted disciple of Christ, a penitent, or a prostitute? Mary of Magdala: FACTS THAT THE DAVINCI CODE DOESN'T REVEAL, now revised with a new introduction, is a fascinating examination of the actual written accounts referring to Mary. The result is a portrait of the various images of Mary that have emerged in different guises over the centuries. This landmark book points out the many distortions and inaccuracies that have resulted in a false portrait of Mary of Magdala as a prostitute. Thompson examines the gospel texts that deal with Mary, as well as the apocryphal gospels and the historical development of devotions to her. What she reveals is a totally different portrait of a woman who dared to be present at the crucifixion of Jesus and at his burial--a compassionate women who was the first to understand something of the resurrection. In this revised edition, Mary Thompson also examines the issues raised in The DaVinci Code and explores the fallacies that underlie them. MARY OF MAGDALA: FACTS THAT THE DAVINCI CODE DOESN'T REVEAL presents clear and compelling evidence that Mary of Magdala indeed played an important role in the early church as disciple, leader, and apostle.
Examines written accounts of Mary Magdalene from her own era, including both canonical and apocryphal writings, points out fallacies and inaccuracies about her life and her significance, and highlights her role in early Christian history.
