Was Jesus's most important disciple of a woman? - A thoughtful and provocative analysis of the evidence by one of today's most respected contemplative teachers.
"But I have tried to state my case in as measured way as possible, given the subject matter, and my measured a way is possible, given the subject matter, and my hope is that even at those inevitable sticky wickets my deep love for the Christian path and yearning for its reconciliation and wholeness will still shine through. When all is said and done, I want Mary Magdalene fully back within the church, not outside it. For here, I believe, is where her finest work is yet to be done." Cynthia Bourgeault
