TUESDAY MORNING BOOK STUDY IN NOVEMBER

The Meaning of Mary Magdalene:

Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity

 

Mary Magdalene is one of the most influential symbols in the history of Christianity — yet, if you look in the Bible, you’ll find only a handful of verses that speak of her.

How did she become such a compelling saint in the face of such paltry evidence?

 

In her effort to answer that question, Cynthia Bourgeault wrote The Meaning of Mary Magdalene. The book examines the Bible, church tradition, art, legend, and newly discovered texts to see what’s there. She then applies her own reasoning and intuition, informed by the wisdom of the ages-old Christian contemplative tradition. What emerges is a radical view of Mary Magdalene as Jesus’s most important disciple, the one he considered to understand his teaching best.

We will be using Bourgeault’s book as a guide along with passages from the Bible to explore more about who Mary Magdalene was and her impact on Christian faith.

We meet on Tuesdays at 10:30 AM in the Fellowship Hall.

There is no meeting on November 23

You can also just come and be a part of the discussion. You do not need to have read the book to join us.
