Mary Magdalene - A Review
Mary was just a child when one night changed her life forever. As she grows into a beautiful woman, she is tormented by forces of evil. Her family has sought every treatment they could think of, yet there was no change. When a new Teacher comes to Magdala, her family takes a chance that this Jesus can help her. Once she's healed, Mary realizes that Jesus has changed her life completely and she joins His followers.
Mary Magdalene is one of the most complex and mysterious characters of the Bible. I've always been intrigued by Biblical fiction and was thrilled to be able to read this book. I'd never read any by Diana Wallis Taylor before this book either. The author does an excellent job of telling Mary's story while remaining true to Scripture. Seeing the freedom that comes to Mary when she has an encounter with Jesus is beautifully told. I hope that this book will draw people closer to the Savior.
I received this book for free from Revell Books in exchange for my review. All thoughts an opinions are my own.
This book is available in June 2012 at your local booksellers from Revell Books, a division of Baker Publishing Group.
