'In his brilliant new work, The Magdalene Legacy, Laurence Gardner expands on the Jesus and Mary Magdalene bloodline conspiracy that he covered in his first book, Bloodline of the Holy Grail. He pieces together the picture that Mary Magdalene was far from the so-called "whore" that Roman Church dogma declared her to be, but a priestess of high status and lineage and also the wife of Jesus.' -- Nexus.

I'm sure the Ladies would be extactic to know that their place in history is now known or at least heading towards the exact spot.
It makes me angry that a subject The Magdalene Legacy: The Jesus and Mary Bloodline Conspiracy - Revelations Beyond "The Da Vinci Code"sensitive to many people can be so degraded by guesswork and poor factual research. I am glad to note that this book is not classified as History.
However Gardner makes assumptions from Biblical texts and draws conclusions from the gospels that cannot be drawn from them. For example he states that Joanna, Jesus' sister went to the tomb with Mary Magdalene - however nowhere in the four gospels does it actually say that Joanna was Jesus' sister. I read the earlier chapters with Gardner's book in one hand and a Bible in the other but finding myself unable to come to the same conclusions as Gardner from reading the referenced Bible texts. Given this, how many of his other references are as ambiguous as these? I'm afraid I felt his credibility had died at this stage and I approached the rest of the book with scepticism and eventually as a story of a legend. If you're looking for an insight into the legend so ahead and read; if you're looking to explore the evidence behind the legend then this is sadly lacking.
