Ann Crawfordabout this book: Here's another perspective on two of the most famous, powerful people in history: Mary Magdalene and Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus)—as a couple. In this alternative version of their story, Mary is a high priestess, an equal to Yeshua. She's powerful, articulate, forthright, and…fun! The book highlights their marriage and starting their family in addition to many of the other well-known events of their time, from Mary's perspective.
I loved writing this book. I grew up Catholic, and I remember that every time I heard the priests talk about Mary Magdalene being a prostitute, I would think, "That's not true"—which was a very strange thing for me to think, as I generally just accepted what I was told when I was a youngster.
I did some research on the Aramaic language, too, and I present some alternative meanings to many long-espoused words from the Bible. I also did some other research, but I don't want to mention it here as I don't want to ruin the surprise.
All of my books kind of demand to be written…the characters start showing up in my mind, clamoring until their stories have been written. Mary's Message is no exception. I recorded the audiobook many years after I first wrote the book, and every few pages I would say, "Wow! This story is something else! This woman is something else!" I hope you enjoy the book and Mary, too.
