From the book description:
Lost and forgotten for more than a thousand years, the only ancient Gospel named after a woman apostle emerged from the sands of Egypt just over a century ago. Originally written in Greek early in the second century and later translated into Coptic, Mary Magdalene’s Gospel comes to vivid life in this fresh translation with contemporary reflections on the ancient wisdom of this recovered treasure.

“Because of the Angels”: Head Coverings and Women in 1 Corinthians 11:2-16 and 14:34,35 by Mark Mattison is now available as a trade paperback and as a Kindle e-book.
From the book jacket:
Did Paul really write that “women … aren’t allowed to speak” in church? Did he really think that women should cover their heads in church because “the head of the woman is man,” and “because of the angels” — whatever that’s supposed to mean?
Or is it possible that these verses were only later added to Paul’s letter to the Corinthians to make it look like he thought that?
What if these weren’t Paul’s own beliefs, but those of some rivals among the Corinthians who thought that men are superior to women? Could Paul actually have been arguing against those beliefs?
That puzzling little phrase “because of the angels” may provide an important key to unlocking these questions.
