Read the Books

Does studying the Bible leave you confused—believing one thing, only to find out you had it all wrong? Mary Magdalene Never Wore Blue Eye Shadow breaks down the barriers that keep you from knowing and understanding God’s Word. It connects Scripture to popular literature, giving you a reference point for its timelines, genres, archaeological discoveries, and interpretations. You will…

  • learn how to read the Bible as it is written rather than accept versions altered by tradition,
  • build a Scriptural foundation that allows you to seek God in His own words rather than what you think Scripture says about Him, and
  • grow in your understanding of God and gain an intimate and complex picture of who He is.

If you want to know the truth about Mary Magdalene’s background and whether Jesus was really born in a barn, Amanda will help you discover new ways to read and understand God’s Word so that you can discern His clear, strong voice.
