The Magdalen: A Novel by Bonnie Jones Reynolds


The novel The Magdalen by Bonnie Jones Reynolds is an amazing journey that most of us have been exposed to in other forms for most of our lives, but this time it is different.  The main players are all there, but not as we have been told about them previously.

This is the story of Joshuah, Merriam, Yeshua, Judah and the rest of those characters that we have come to know in other familiar names.  This is the re-telling of the New Testament that many people would rather not see, but in my humble opinion is essential, as it allows the mind, heart and soul to make a choice.  It contains all the things we love about a good book.  This is a voyage back in time that could quite possibly show people an amazing future.

THe Magdalen

I really loved this book.  It’s a long book, I’ll give you that, and I felt at times a little heavy handed in terms of what is being “taught”, but over all it was fantastic.  Bonnie Jones Reynolds has taken the “Greatest Story Ever Told” and made it greater.  Each of the characters we know from the Bible, is different and real.  They are strong and likeable, something that’s essential.  We are introduced to a whole new understanding of what God may be.   Not only do we see a truly Gnostic version of the Story of Jesus’ life, but we are also introduced to the history of the Jewish people, that I’m sure many are completely unaware, as I was.   I was drawn in and held to the end.

This is a novel that many will find radical and controversial, but it’s a story that has been longing to be told.   If you have an open mind and heart to hear about a message of Joy and Love, then please read this book.

Synopsis: Another world war has happened and everything we knew is now gone. There are no more countries. No more government… only survivors who have created a new world made up of small colonies. It has been thirteen years and the village of Lia Fail sits peacefully above the Hollywood Reservoir in the Santa Monica Mountains. The settlement is making ready to host the fall Gathering, a time where every six months the other colonies from various parts of what was once Southern California visit for ten days of fun and reminiscence. The Gathering begins as any other party. A time for new loves, old friends, family, dancing and fun, but all too soon that changes. The people in Lia Fail begin to experience strange goings on they can’t explain, unseen forces attack several guests and friends begin to distrust friends. When they receive news of a horrific massacre, they realize they must face an impending dark evil that threatens to descend on the tranquil village.

Morality for Atheists: Reasons Not to Go On A Rampage! by M. Adams – Book Review – Around the Universe Tours


Morality for Atheists banner

Synopsis: RELIGION AND MORALITY. For far too long, religion has been considered to be a pre-condition of morality and many still believe you could not have one without the other. But what would this mean for atheists, if this were true? What exactly is preventing atheists from going on a murderous rampage? Can atheists be moral?

This short concise book aims to tackle the common misconceptions regarding morality, atheism and religion using reasoned argument and a refreshing slice of humour.

Review: This is a very short book, a novella really, but it certainly comes chock full of knowledge and information.  Having said that, it isn’t a boring read, quite the contrary.  Mary-Louise Adams manages to interject statistics, perceptions, philosophies and ideologies in a very interesting and informative light.

She is straight forward in her attempt to make sure that anyone who takes the time to read this book will understand that morality is a human issue, not a religious or non-religious issue, an dI couldn’t agree more.  Her points are honest and true and extremely accurate in many cases.

I myself was raised Roman Catholic and I am know a pagan solitary witch of my own design.  I have never assumed that atheism is amoral, but I can see where more conservative sects of religious individuals would.  For that reason, I can understand the need for a book like Ms. Adams’ has written.

Although this book may stir up debate, it should.  I for one thought this book was very, very good and I would recommend this book to anyone trying to understand humanity and our morality.
