"Compelling and provocative . . . a major contribution to freeing Jesus for the interreligious and the non-religious world that is emerging."--John Shelby Spong, author of Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World
Townsend, a former vicar of the Church of England, offers an historically important and provocative portrait of Jesus Christ--a compassionate, lifeaffirming, nature-inspired spiritual teacher, freed from the limiting ideology of the Church.
Reverend Mark Townsend's remarkable book is truly unlike any other, a thoughtful and deeply moving collection of more than two dozen stories, essays, and interviews about Jesus from today's most respected Wiccan and Druidic leaders. Contributors such as Maxine Sanders, Christopher Penczak, Janet Farrar, Diana Paxson, Philip Carr-Gomm, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, and Raven Grimassi explore the historical figure of Jesus in relation to witchcraft, the tarot, goddess worship, and shamanism--while illustrating how this god of the Christian church blesses and inspires many who cannot or will not be part of his "official" family.
