The Gospel According to Mary
By: Miriam Therese Winter
Imagine that archaeologists discovered a first-century gospel written by a woman. What would it remember, celebrate, hand on? What would it say about women, about Jesus, about discipleship and church?
"The Gospel According to Mary tells the very familiar story, parables, and teachings of Jesus, but through the imaginary eyes of a first-century woman. She uses as her sources the female disciples, ‘women who had been transformed by Jesus."
