On the shore of the Sea of Galilee, in first century
Palestine, a spirit possessed a woman, Mary of Magdala—a generous and learned
woman of business. Mary drew together a community of outcasts, rescued from
lives of poverty and humiliation. Longing for children, she brought into her
circle a Greek slave girl, Demetria, and adopted her as a daughter. Though she
was a devout Jew, it was natural for Mary to show compassion to all—despite the
fact that others often looked upon her as a gentile, a prostitute, and a leper.
Because of the demon that afflicted her, Mary resolved
never to wed. Still, three men loved her. Marcus Quintius Severus,
quintessential Roman noble, could have any woman he wanted. But not this woman,
for he had made a sacred vow never to speak to her of his love. Mummius, gifted
Egyptian scribe and magus, served Mary as steward and physician. Jesus,
itinerant rabbi, recognizing in Mary the Wisdom of God, liberated her by
driving out her demon in a terrible battle.
This novel is the story of how Mary brings her spiritual
power to light as leader and beloved disciple, the one who truly understood
Jesus’ message and lived it fully. Download and start listening now!
