Alice Peterson suffers from postpartum depression. Her gynecologist refers her to Donald Silverstein, a psychiatrist who specializes in hypnotic regression therapy (HRT). During hypnosis, Alice reveals that in a past life, she was Mary Magdalene. During 9 hypnotic sessions, she describes in precise chronographic, geographic, and historical details, her life in Jesus' times. Faced with questions such as: Was Jesus a poor carpenter born in Bethlehem? Did he have other siblings? Did he believe he was the son of God? Did he resurrect? She answers these questions in excruciating detail, because she was there. She tells Dr. Silverstein about the Lord's real birthplace, his education, social status, youth, ministry, trial, judgment, crucifixion, burial, and resurrection. She also tells him about their wedding, their daughter, her ministry, and her disagreements with Peter.
