I do not understand that such a beautiful book is out of print! The author has channeled Mary Magdalene, and the words are touching and inspiring. I had expected it to be the story of her life there is much about her time with Jesus, whom she calls her partner and equal in spiritual development. In the first part, she tells the story of beautiful sexual love between them, and how through it, Jesus was energized to fulfill his mission her on earth. She explains the value to our physical and spiritual strength, to our health, personal and societal, of making love vs. just having sex, in the first part of the book, spiritual teachings of a beautiful, insightful and compassionate soul, in the second part of the book. It was a bit disconcerting at times when she commented on modern issues, but I suppose that she has been with humanity all this time, so would know about our technological advances and what is happening in our modern society. This book is so beautiful, that at times, it made me misty-eyed, something that I understand from other readers, is not an unusual response. I recommend this book.
