Readers of the paranormal oftentimes come into contact with the presence of Mary Magdalene in various ghostly settings. There is much to say about this remarkable woman, yet until recent years she has been overlooked.
What Tau Malachi has done is reveal factual material about Mary Magdalene that the Catholic Church would prefer the world not to know. But truth has a way of coming out, no matter how long it takes.
In the Gnostic scriptures, there is a distinct fact given: Mary Magdalene had an important role in the revelation of Gospel, and her relationship with Jesus Christ and his disciples is great. This book is a collection of the Sophian Gospel of St. Mary Magdalene. There are 250 illuminating wisdom sayings which the reader can utilize for personal spiritual growth.
Other sections of special interest include topics such as "The Mysteries of the Arayot," "The Dance of the Bride," "The Maiden of Light," "Seven Faces of the Holy Bride," "The Divine Incarnation," "Three Holy Mountains," "On the Way to Golgotha," "The Holy Grail," "The World of Spirits," "The Circle of Our Lady," "The Angel of Death," among many others.
Highly recommended work concerning the Gnostic tradition and the enduring role of Mary Magdalene within that tradition. This is a fascinating look at a woman whose role has often been overlooked by those in church power, and it reveals why she has been overlooked.
Mary Magdalene is revealed as a powerful holy woman, the innermost disciple of Jesus, and the beloved wife of Jesus. She is the female embodiment of what is known as the Christ revelation: Christ the Sophia.
The reader will find this a fascinating and memorable reading experience. Tau Malachi has actively practiced Gnostic Christianity and the Kabbalah for over thirty years. Considered by many respected sources as a modern day mystic, his published writings have attracted a wide reading audience.
