Bestselling Author Mary Ellen Lukas Talks About Mary Magdalene’s Role in Spirituality
In a time of such uncertainty, many turn to spirituality or religion to provide answers. However, the younger generations know how difficult it is to turn to religion when it has contributed to the mass amount of discrimination and injustice they are fighting to eradicate today.
A new bestselling book highlights how Jesus was the first feminist and how Mary Magdalene is a central figure in the church. While this may sound like a storyline in a Dan Brown novel, it has been whispered by many that Mary Magdalene wasn’t the stigmatized prostitute in the Christian religion. Instead she is the wife and companion of Jesus Christ.
Now, after many decades of Church rhetoric to eliminate Mary from the teachings of Christ, religious historian Mary Ellen Lukas discusses this and other outdated patriarchal religious institutions in her new book, Are You Still Mine? Mary Ellen Lukas is known throughout the world as a controversial and motivational speaker. She is the Foundress of the Eeshan Religion and Church of Metta Spirituality and School of Enlightenment.
