This work disentangles the facts and myths around Mary Magdalene clearly and concisely and introduces us to some other women disciples mentioned in the New Testament.

The author looks at various women mentioned in the bible or other contemporaneous writings and then researches thoroughly future mentions and interpretation of the traditional view of these women. The reading is very academic, although the book cover mentions that this is an example of "the forgotten art in theology: the use of imagination". I found the imagination too dry to get my arms around. Recommended for anyone looking for scholarly discussion, but not for general reading.
