Publisher's Summary

Margaret Starbird's theological beliefs were profoundly shaken when she read Holy Blood, Holy Grail, a book that dared to suggest that Jesus Christ was married to Mary Magdalen and that their descendants carried on his holy bloodline in Western Europe. Shocked by such heresy, this Roman Catholic scholar set out to refute it but instead found new and compelling evidence for the existence of the bride of Jesus - the same enigmatic woman who anointed him with precious unguent from her "alabaster jar".

In this provocative book, Starbird draws her conclusions from an extensive study of history, heraldry, symbolism, medieval art, mythology, psychology, and the Bible itself. The Woman with the Alabaster Jar is a quest for the forgotten feminine - in the hope that its return will help restore a healthy balance to planet Earth.

loved it!

this book pieced so much of my own understandings and research and made the penny drop for me in my own experiences that related to some of the writings. Loved it!

DISASTER

The story might be great but the performance of the reader is HORRIBLE! She sounds like she is in an echo chamber!

Fascinating and Inspiring

I love the premise and bringing in all of the signs and symbols, art and stories from throughout the centuries and cultures was riveting.
