Editorial Reviews

The veil has been lifted.

"As you sit in the audience, at home or at church, may you be transformed into a woman as bold as Mary Magdalene who declared without apology: 'I have seen the Lord!'" --Liz Curtis Higgs

Long before she became a best-selling author, Liz Curtis Higgs was an award-winning speaker. This one-hour video presentation, recorded live, captures her passion for Mary Magdalene's life-changing message for women today. The humor, the pathos, the life lessons, the biblical truth are all reflected in Liz's heartfelt words and animated delivery.

Through Unveiling Mary Magdalene--the book, the workbook, the video--women are invited to join Mary of Magdala on her transforming journey from madwoman to glad woman, from the darkness of her seven demons to the bright light of Easter morning.

5.0 out of 5 stars A dose of encouraging reality January 11, 2007
Format:Paperback
Wow! This book is fabulous. Written with typical Liz humor and deep insight, this book is a must for anyone who wants to really understand Mary Magdalene. Liz lets us know why most of our perceptions about Mary Magdalene are erroneous. She also has that wonderful ability to modernize the story for us. We see a fictional modern woman and situation juxtaposed against the scriptural Mary. This really brings Mary to life. If you've read the DaVinci Code, you'll want to compare the two Marys represented.

I can also recommend Bad Girls of the Bible and Really Bad Girls of the Bible by the same author, who describes herself as a "former bad girl." Funny, moving, and meaningful.

5.0 out of 5 stars terrific two-part combo May 27, 2004
Format:Paperback
?The Story?. On an icy Chicago day, Pastor Jake Stauros of Calvary Fellowship sees the desperate mumbling woman in her Goodwill wardrobe struggling to walk so he offered her help. Mary Margaret Delaney pretends to ignore his kindness and just keeps slipping, and incoherently saying ?Luna?. Jake truly wants to help her, but wonders how to reach Mary Margaret without a miracle as she acts as if demons possess her mind, and soul. Yet with God?s help he has assisted several rag tag muffins now part of the Calvary Fellowship. He will continue to pray for Mary Margaret, show her she is not alone, and optimistically hope she will join them. Mary Margaret?s story is a brilliantly written modern day parable paralleling that of Mary Magdalene so that readers can place a contemporary context on perhaps the bible?s ?baddest girl?.
?The Study?. Will the real Mary Magdalene stand up? Was she a courageous individual who followed Jesus and quickly became more than just a believer, but the person who was honored with being the first to see his reappearance? Was she a prostitute, Jesus? earthly lover or was that bad PR by a male dominated medieval church? Was she possessed by demons? Liz Curtis Higgs answers all the above and more with a thought provoking, well researched look at the New Testament. Using specific references that are easy to follow, Ms. Higgs furbishes a powerful intriguing case of who was the real Mary Magdalene.
UNVEILING MARY MAGDALENE is a terrific two-part combo that provides a wonderful novelette with an insightful biblical study that enables the audience to come away with a full understanding of one of the bible?s ?goodest? girls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovin' Liz August 2, 2008
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I love Liz's sense of humor and thought that was what I was buying. I took it on vacation with me and read the novel portion of the book and was pleasantly surprised that it was a well written novel with a very serious side (it made me cry on the airplane). I enjoyed it so much that I am going to suggest it as a book/bible study at church. Liz is a multi-talented sister and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase anything that she wrote.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, awesome, awesome!! November 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an amazing book about the true life of Mary Magdalene. It starts with a contemporary story of Mary M. to help the reader understand what Mary M.'s life might have been like. The book identifies the mistakes that have been made over history to write an incorrect story about Mary M. It's a wonderful book to discover or re-discover Mary Magdalene. She's always been my favorite and now even more so. Great book!

4.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing View to Mary Magdalene August 14, 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed how Liz Curtis Higgs wrote this book in two separate parts; the first being a fictional story and the second being the study. It helped to develop the relationship between Jesus and Mary M. The Study was super informative as well, however I did feel that she was distracted by tangents that we not completely relevent to Mary's story. Overall it was very informative and enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading, but gets only 3 stars December 17, 2012
By Lindy
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As other reviewers have pointed out, this book does two things: (1) it tells us a very important, ancient story in such modern terms that we easily "buy into" the characters, the situations, and the dilemmas long before we recognize the original; and (2) it makes us take a fresh, careful, thoughtful look at Mary of Magdala, who she was, who she wasn't, and who she might have been. All of this captured and held my interest. The book is presented in two sections: "The Story" and "The Study." The first half of "The Story" is much better crafted and written than the second (which gets a bit ham-fisted in places), but the device still works fairly well as an effective set-up for "The Study." Overall, the issues raised in this book are still intriguing my mind, days after completing the book, so for that reason, I can recommend this work.

Clearly, this author is very popular and successful. For me personally, however, there is too much Smarty-Pants in the way Liz Higgs writes. Particularly in "The Study," I felt she tries too hard to be clever or funny, disrupting the flow of both the text and the point she is trying to communicate. That's not good writing.

I was also put off by her repeated use of words like, "Sis," "Babe," and "Chick," all addressed to me, her reader. First of all, I might well be a male reader, not a female; sadly, the message she conveys to males is, "This book is not written for you." Second, most of these nicknames are the very same ones used back in the Bad Old Days by men who wolf-whistled at us, ogled our breasts, and pinched our bottoms. I don't like being "sex-ified," not even by another woman.
