LIGHT TURNS TO SHADOW as Mary Magdalene a beautiful, gifted young woman with an apparently divine connection from birth is abducted and sold into brutal slavery in Babylon. Her light dims in brutal captivity. Only her connection to the orphan, Tezrah, preserves a shred of her humanity. Rescued by Caius Averna, a noble Roman aristocrat in exile, Magdalene and Tezrah return to Judea while Averna marches off to encounter a hopelessly overwhelming force from Rome’s arch-rival, the Parthian Empire.
Magdalene’s damaged life spirals downward until she is saved from death by Jesus of Nazareth. She becomes his primary disciple. She rises to bear the secret, radical knowledge he taught to an elect few.
SET AGAINST THE CLASH OF OPPOSING EMPIRES and a backdrop of murder, espionage, and betrayal, Magdalene is pursued by a sadistic Roman assassin as she embarks on an odyssey across the ancient world. She seeks the key that will make her worthy to reveal the true message of the martyred Jesus before she too is silenced and her native Judea is destroyed in a rain of fire and blood.
MYSTERIES OF THE BIBLE SOLVED This is the groundbreaking novel that fills in many of the puzzling passages and mysteries woven through the familiar scriptural stories of the Bible. Mary Magdalene’s story in not just about the lost feminine voice of the early Church—her story is our story, the universal saga of humanity’s origin, destiny, and purpose. It is the story of an explosive divine knowledge being silenced by opposing powers to prevent a shocking truth from transforming mankind with a new paradigm for existence.
BASED ON GENUINE SCRIPTURES Using the near- lost gospels of the earliest Judeo-Christian mystics recovered recent times, Peter Canova reconstructs Western spiritual history in a spellbinding page-turner about fall, transcendence, and redemption.
