Book Overview

Wall Street Journal bestseller-now in paperback-offers a new perspective on the most misunderstood figure in the Christian story and the key to reclaiming the divine feminine in our lives and hearts.

The Gospel of Mary Magdalene reveals a very different love story from the one we've come to refer to as Christianity. In Mary Magdalene Revealed, available for the first time in paperback, Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson leads us verse by verse through Mary's gospel to illuminate the powerful teachings it contains.
Her gospel, as ancient and authentic as any of the gospels that the Christian bible contains, reveals a radical love that sits at the heart of the Christian story. It tells us that we are not sinful; we are not to feel ashamed or unworthy for being human. In fact, our purpose is to be fully human, to be a true human being-with both a messy, limited ego and a limitless soul. And all we need to do is to turn inward (again and again); to meditate, like Mary Magdalene, in the way her gospel directs us, so that we can see past the ego of our own little lives to what's more real, and lasting, and infinite, and already here, within.
With searing clarity, Watterson explains how and why Mary Magdalene came to be portrayed as the penitent prostitute and relates a more historically and theologically accurate depiction of who Mary was Read More chevron_right

   Reading this is an experience too
Mary Magdalene's letter is a well-written reflection on the life of the Roman Catholic Church. Now I'm excited to get my own copy of hers and other gospels not included in the bible. We are now acknowledging women's power and contribution in many spiritual practices and religions, Raymond said.

   The Truth About Jesus....Honoring Women
The book tells the story of how the Catholic Church came to be. What it truly means to be Christ-like, not the mainstream Christian faith we see today, he said. This book allowed me to see Jesus the way he truly was. This book is highly recommended by anyone who has been unsatisfied with the faith of the present church and is looking for truth.

   Striving for Balance
A well-known spiritual awakening, it was said.

   Great book
I've read all the books except for this one. The author is an engaging, witty, and thought-provoking writer. But she is a real person, approachable and human, a true scholar.

   Enlightenment
What a wonderful book, said Dr. Goin. I would highly recommend that everyone read this book.

   Every Woman Should Read
It's a great book for your Daughters, Aunts, Mothers, Nieces, Grandchildren, and Friends. In her beautifully written book, the journey Meggan Watterson takes us on to the truth about women in their centuries-long battle to prove our Divinity to humanity. The whole thing is a travesty, Hillary Clinton said on NBC's "Meet the Press."

   Incredible Divine Feminine Teachings and Wisdom
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read. In her book, Kate Austen shares many of her life experiences. It feels very personal, empowering, and it activated my desire to know more and follow the Divine Feminine path, Blair said. The vibration activated and nourished my soul. It led me to my remembering, without any religion, of the ways in which I had fallen in love with God. He added that the Beatles' music "will forever be known as the great equalizer." It came to me when I needed it the most, Diana said. Thanks for reading this article.

   It is more about Meggan Watterson than it is about Mary Magdalene
I bought it because I've always felt that the Church has always misportrayed Mary Magdalene and after reading the reviews, I was convinced that this was THE book. It was a smash and gave us all whiplash, Keanu Reeves said. I was excited to read it in the beginning, but as I read through, the less it handled about Mary Magdalene, her story and her Evangelium, and the more it handled about Meg Watterson and her life. After reading it, I started to skim-through it just to read about what really was about Mary Magdelene, which made me finish it in less than an hour. If you want to learn more about Meg, you must read the entire book.

   Know Yourself Better than you ever have before!
This book was like telling me things I already knew deep down but never got confirmed until I read it. The book gives clarity to any woman who has ever felt like her connection to God was being stifled or blocked in any way. The book has been described by many as life-changing. Every woman needs to read this to understand herself better.

   The Gospel of Mary! And so it is. Thy will be done.
The book is very good. For those of us who know in our hearts that Christianity is not complete when women are excluded or worse, this is a must read. Mary Magdalena is the gospel we need most right now as the patriarchal system comes crashing down around us. I still can't get over the fact that Meg Watterson has captured my heart once again.
