From the Publisher

In the Gospels of the Bible there are a few comments about Mary Magdalene here and there. But in the Gnostic scriptures that have been discovered, there are tantalizing hints that both her relationship to Jesus and her role among Jesus' disciples may have been profoundly important. Among several schools of Gnostic Christianity, Mary plays an essential role in the revelation of the gospel.

Here, for the first time in print, is a Sophian Gospel of St. Mary Magdalene. No secret oral tradition as extensive as this has ever been recorded, and none has ever presented a Gnostic view of Mary Magdalene as she is portrayed in this groundbreaking work-as a powerful holy woman, the innermost disciple and beloved wife of Jesus, and a Christed woman who is coequal with Jesus in the Christ revelation.

"We asked ourselves if there was a way to bring thos

ELIZABETH DIAS What has surprised you about the response to your newest book, Becoming Wise: An Inquiry Into the Mystery and Art of Living? Even in early 2016, people were so weary—sore inside. In the 24/7 news environment, people are bombarded with the same story of what is catastrophic and corrupt and failing 25 times before lunch. They start to internalize that not as news but as the norm. An effect I see on people in conversations that came up around the book is, there are actually so many beautiful, generative things happening in the world.

A Great Neighbor

On Friday, Nov. 25, Justin Normand woke up ready to take a stand. Infuriated by reports of hate crimes against Muslims and calls to ban them from immigrating to the U.S., the manager of a Dallas sign shop decided to do what he does best—he made a sign: “You Belong. Stay Strong. Be Blessed. We Are One America.” Then he drove to the nearby Islamic Center of Irving, stood in front of the center’s mosque and held it up. “At first people driving into the center had scowls on their faces,” says Normand, 53. “Then I’d see a change wash over them as they saw the message, and I’d see tears in their eye
