Many years after the crucifixion, Mary lives in Ephessus. She is visited regularly by two men, who make her tell her story and how she experienced the last days of her son’s life again and again so they can write the Testaments that will change the world for ever.
A familiar story, told from a very different perspective this slim novella is also something else, something bigger and stronger. With artful narrative that boldly strips any divinity from the characters, humanizing them and making them more real than they have ever been in the last 2000 years, “The Testament of Mary” is not about faith or doubt, it is about pain, loss and guilt. Blasphemous for some, it’s the story of a mother who tries to save her son but can’t, and when she finally lashes out, she asks the only question that matters. The answer will resonate in you forever.
