Testament of Mary, Toibin,  Colm
Testament of Mary
Colm Toibin

Hardback $19.99 - Pan Macmillan Australia
Fiction - Published: 1/Nov/2012 - ISBN: 9781742611044

Provocative, haunting, and indelible, Colm Tóibín’s novella tells the story of the events leading to the crucifixion from the viewpoint of a Mary much contrary to the long suffering docile mother as portrayed for centuries. Toibin presents her as a solitary older woman still seeking to understand the events that have become the narrative of the New Testament and the foundation of Christianity. She has no interest in collaborating with the authors of the Gospel—her keepers. She does not agree that her son is the Son of God. Compelling and vividly imagined.
