JESUS THROUGH PAGAN EYES
Bridging Neopagan Perspectives with a Progressive Vision of Christ
By Mark Townsend
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.
