Item Description...
If one of the gospels were written by a woman, what would it be like? "The Gospel According to Mary tells the very familiar story, parables, and teachings of Jesus, but through the imaginary eyes of a first-century woman, using as her sources the female disciples . . . . The book remains faithful to the gospel message and parallels carefully the stories told by Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John-with the explicit participation of the women highlighted. The healing miracles recounted here particularly illustrate both the determined faith of women who followed Jesus and his limitless compassion, as does his interaction with both women and men throughout this 'gospel'. . . .

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Imaginary Gospel  Feb 23, 2008
This 1993 book claims that the Gospel of Mary "was written by a woman for women and for others who feel excluded...Its purpose is to lift the good news up to God and to ask Her to say it again..." The author describes the book as "a feminist critique and reconstruction."

Interestingly enough, rather than ascribing the gospel to Mary Magdalene, the author believes it was written by "the granddaughter of Mary the mother of John Mack, who led a house church in Jerusalem. Her name was also Mary...Among her sources were "Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary of Bethany, and Mary Magdalene."

After the introduction, the book quotes from a Gospel of Mary that is completely unfamiliar to this author. Apparently the author has channeled the granddaughter and proceeded to write her own gospel. While it is interesting, it certainly bears no resemblance to the Gospel of Mary.
Close but misses the mark  Mar 13, 1998
This attempt to re-present the gospels in a feminine friendly format is a noble effort. However, the author changes the meaning or simplifies the complexity that gives the Gospels their enduring power by simple means - for example saying something is "like" when part of the textual complexity of the gospel is the ambiguity between reading as a simile or as metaphor or as an actual equating. I also found the picture drawn of males to be more incomplete and more prejudice than the picture of females in the original gospels. I recognize others disagree with me, but I don't enjoy fighting prejudice with prejudice. I applaud the attempt to write a feminist version of the gospel and would not discourage others from reading The Gospel According to Mary I would encourage others to read it with a critical mindset.
