What if Jesus knew how it feels to be queer?
Surprising answers come in Jesus in Love, a novel that re-imagines Christ’s legendary life as an erotic, mystical adventure in first-century Palestine. Jesus has today’s queer sensibilities and psychological sophistication as he lives out his mythic story. Readers can relate to the struggles he faces: He feels like his real self is both male and female. He falls in love with people of both sexes. Society doesn’t understand him. Jesus, the narrator, speaks in an engaging, up-to-date tone as he reveals his intimate relationships with John the beloved disciple, Mary Magdalene, and the multi-gendered Holy Spirit. Jesus in Love frees the reader to imagine and experience Christ in new ways.
“A truly mind-blowing creation. The writing style is just per- fect. Jesus in Love is a wonderful, gay-sensitive, and delight- fully ‘shocking’ reassessment of the stories of the old-time religion. I promise you, you’ll be surprised.” —Toby Johnson, author of Gay Spirituality and former editor of White Crane: A Journal of Gay Spirit
“People who want to understand how erotic love can be sacred, and divine love can be erotic, will delight in this novel.” —Virginia Ramey Mollenkott, Ph.D., author of Omnigender and Transgender Journeys
