Jesus and Mary Magdalene: a love story
Forget Dan Brown, this is very probably the REAL story, and it's more beautiful than you could imagine. In this book, the author attempts to tell the story of Jesus and Mary in the first person, hoping thereby to enter their minds to some degree. Jesus, as well as being the Eternal Word of God, is seen as being completely human, "like us in all things except sin" as St Paul puts it. The implication is that besides experiencing weakness, limitation and even ignorance, he must have been a fully integrated sexual being, with his sexuality playing a decisive part in his psychology. In accordance with the theory advanced by Ramon K. Jusino in his article "Mary Magdalen - author of the fourth Gospel?" Mary is seen as the mysterious "disciple whom Jesus loved" who features prominently in the fourth Gospel. Their relationship is explored with what is hoped is openness and honesty. The work is itself fictional, but follows closely the Gospel narratives. The generous preview gives a good taste of the book.
