'Mary Magdalene, despite her importance to the life and ministry of Christ, is the most enigmatic and puzzling figure in the Christian gospel. In 'Mary Magdalene'Robin Griffith-Jones examines ancient sources to give us a comprehensive, scholarly and impressively researched account of her discipleship and continued influence on the history of the Church. I found this book more enthralling than any secular mystery and for the first time felt that I understood something of the character of this frequently misunderstood saint. Beautifully written and illustrated, Mary Madgdalene will be as fascinating to lay people as it will be welcomed by theologians and historians. I congratulate the Master of the Temple on a fine and timely achievement.' -- P. D. James 2008
Robin Griffith-Jones is the author of The Da Vinci Code and the Secrets of the Temple. He is Master of the Temple Church in London and previously taught Biblical Studies and was a University Chaplain at Oxford.
