    One thought on “At Jesus' Feet: The Gospel According to Mary Magdalene”

    1. Well, let's start with the premise. Doug Batchelor's At Jesus' Feet is a hybrid narrative/devotional/study about the biblical character Mary Magdelene. The overarching theme is that one so humble as Mary - a prostitute who learns to love Jesus - can be exalted to a major role in the salvation story. There are major problems with this premise, however. For instance, the Bible never says Mary Magdalene was a prostitute. There is a passage in John 8 that tells the famous story of Jesus forgiving an [...]

    2. This is one of those books I intensely underrated. Up until I read it.Some simple truths in this book have very deep theological roots mouth was always agape in dis-belief of how much i did not know in the gospels.It's a tiny book but i read it slowr wanting ot to ever end. Knowhatamsaying?

    3. An interesting perspective from Doug, too much imagination in building the storyline. I didn't like the exaggerated portion, I tend to believe these were too much imagination in how things transpired, however, I love the fact that Doug gives a disclaimer at the beginning.However, I loved the study portions, where we get to reinforce our understanding of the scenes and opportunities that Mary had at Jesus' feet, we get to learn on some of the lessons she had, I love the fact that Doug expands on [...]

    4. Luke 19:10-For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost." The gospel here is told as if by Mary Magdalene, a prostitute, who was nearly stoned by religious leaders, but saved by the grace of God. Mary's appreciation of the Lord's healing her of the demons is demonstrated in her love, gratitude, and humble service to him in the resurrection account.Jesus wants a relationship with us. Doug Batchelor tells many stories in this plainly written book that pack a punch. The book revolves a [...]

    5. Give of yourself to the Master. Build a strong relationship with him. We experience hurt and pain in this life, but once we seek the saviour and have an experience with him, we begin to embrace what I like to call Christian Sobriety - clarity in words and deeds, seeking to please him in everything that we do.Confession is good for the soul, for the word says "if we confess our sins he is faithful and just to FORGIVE US of ALL OUR SINS and cleanse us from ALL unrighteousness" 1 Jn 1:9. You can do [...]

    6. At Jesus Feet is written by Doug Batchelorthis author led a troubled life until he let the Lord guide his steps. In this book he tells of some of the gospels . One story was about mary and Martha.Martha is always busy with work while Mary sits at Jesus feet praising and anointing him. which does our lord and savior cherish the most. I know he appreciates all that Martha does but Mary blesses his heart. Jesus wants us to praise and thank him always.

    7. "Someone to love me." That's what Mary Magdelene wanted - all anyone really wants. She was a prosperous but miserable prostitute until she met Someone who saved her through a pure, unconditional love. She was a devoted follower of Christ thereafter.

    8. Good Read. "The last will be first, the weak will find strength." This book tells the Beautiful story of Mary Magdalene, coupled with the study of the gospels. Read to discover a newer take on old scripture & how it applies to us today & points to our future.
