Through the Eyes of Mary Magdalene

In this first book of a trilogy on the life of Mary Magdalene, Estelle Isaacson presents her visions of the life of "the Apostle to the Apostles" as seen through Magdalene's own eyes. Following a Prologue "in the starry heavens," Part One encompasses Magdalene's childhood, her journeys and education in Egypt, her struggle with temptations, and her conversion. Part Two takes the reader through some of Magdalene's experiences as she lays down her former life and follows Jesus as his disciple. Part Three visits the Lazarus mysteries and includes revelations concerning his initiation, death, and resurrection. Part Four comprises five appendices presenting subsidiary visions. Among these are two visions of Magdalene's mysterious sister Silent Mary, a figure otherwise unknown except through the earlier visions of the Catholic stigmatist Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824). The book is graced with many illustrations by James J. Tissot (1836-1902), whose work resonates also with Estelle in a very special way, the artist's depictions being so very close to what she herself witnesses in vision. Those who find this volume valuable and inspiring will be glad to know of two further volumes of the trilogy, and that works on other subjects drawn from the ongoing wellspring of Estelle's visions will follow. Book II of the Magdalene trilogy is subtitled From Initiation to the Passion, and Book III is subtitled From the Ascension to Journeys in Gaul. "Estelle invites us to stand witness by her side, in community with the Logos and with Sophia. She tells us we need not wait until we are perfect, for Christ comes to us now!" -From the Introduction "This book is a truly remarkable work on Mary Magdalene, in which the mysteries she lived through are re-experienced through her eyes in a most touching and tangible way." -Robert Powell, author The Mystery, Biography & Destiny of Mary Magdalene.
