³Nowak shows that traditional orthodoxy¹s gradual distancing from, and distortion of, the revelatory event to which it claims allegiance is a human phenomenon, replicated in other fields of endeavour including the history of philosophy, the mundane world of geology and the more intimate world of the family where conscious and unconscious dynamics work to suppress dark family secrets.
² David Bakan,
³ Donald Capps,
Nowak's work is fresh, thorough, and exciting. It's a must read for Jewish and Christian Bible scholars alike. Miriam of Nazareth makes the Quest for the Historical Jesus take a back seat for a while to the long-neglected search for the historical Miriam...and Miriam (Mary), the Mother of Jesus."
