Open Your Eyes to a
Picture of Jesus You Have Never Seen Before
Pagans and Christians alike, Jesus Through Pagan
offers a provocative portrait of Jesus—as a
compassionate, life-affirming, nature-inspired spiritual teacher, freed
from the limiting ideology of the Church. Rev. Mark Townsend sets the
stage by exploring the historical evidence of who Jesus was as a human
being before delving into the realm of metaphor and mythology, the
notion of Christ, and the Church’s conception of Jesus as Christ.
The heart of this unique book lies in the thoughtful and deeply moving
collection of stories, essays, and interviews about Jesus from today’s
most respected Pagan, Wiccan, and Druidic leaders. Contributors such as
Maxine Sanders, Christopher Penczak, Janet Farrar, Diana Paxson, Philip
Carr-Gomm, Oberon Zell-Ravenheart, John Michael Greer, Selena Fox, 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
those who embrace non-traditional spiritual paths.
Whether you envision Jesus as an ascended master, a human teacher, or a
mythic god-man, this remarkable book will introduce you to a Jesus who
fits fully into the Pagan imagination.
