Note from Deborah Diakonissa: I have a problem with the use of prostitutes as prefiguring MM, unless you see her as a hierodule. I think this hearkens back to the “MM had seven demons, so she was a sinner, and being a woman,she must have been a prostitute” line of thinking. Perhaps Ms. Starbird should be encouraged to clarify this in later editions!

Essay: How do you plan to restore the Lost Bride? Briefly describe your ideas.
