The ultimate act of love….
Picking up where Jesus in Love left off, Jesus in Love: At the Cross continues the story of Jesus’ erotic, mystical adventures in first-century Palestine, this time all the way to his untimely death, his miraculous resurrection, and beyond. Jesus has today’s queer sensibilities and psychological sophistication as he lives out his mythic story.
“A real tour de force in transforming traditional myth to modern consciousness…. A wonderful, gay-sensitive, and delightfully ‘shocking’ reassessment of the stories of the old-time religion. I promise you, you’ll be surprised by the book.” —Toby Johnson, author of Gay Spirituality and former editor of White Crane: A Journal of Gay Spirit
“Utilizing all the throbbing colors of human passion, this mystical novel depicts Jesus as the eager Lover of every human being who is open to the divine Spirit, and as the essence of every holy relationship, same-sex or otherwise. At the same time it brings to life the familiar stories of Palm Sunday, Christ’s sufferings, death and resurrection, and Pentecost, ending with an invitation to the reader to become part of an ongoing celebration of Love. Kittredge Cherry has painted a daring and challenging portrait of an omnigendered, sensuous Christianity.” —Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, Ph.D., author of Omnigender, co-author of Transgender Journeys
