Overview

Jean Houston revitalizes the story of Christ by presenting to readers the possibility of "being Christs." Dr. Houston draws from philosophy, mythology, Jungian psychology, mysticism, anthropology, and new science to present the familiar gospel stories in a new light. Exercises are presented which can be done individually or with a group, including creative arts, movement and dance, ritual and ceremony, drama and high play. Readers will experience the story of Christ happening right now in the heart.

For many, the story of the Christ has lost the meaning it once had. In this work, Jean Houston revitalizes the story of Christ by presenting to readers the possibility of "being Christs." Dr. Houston draws from philosophy, mythology, Jungian psychology, mysticism, anthropology, new science, and just plain creativity to present the familiar gospel stories in a new light. Exercises which can be done individually or with a group allow the reader to experience these stories, not just read about them. (Quest Books)

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This retelling of the story of Jesus, inspired by gnostic as well as canonical gospels, seeks to help people recognize the truths Jesus experienced and to give birth to Christ in their own lives. The book is designed to be used in groups, either during a retreat or in five weekly meetings organized around five themes of Jesus' birth, discovery of his identity, love, miracles, and resurrection. Houston suggests appropriate music, scripture readings, materials, and describes the process. Houston also reflects on some of her experiences which imaged an aspect of God for her. Recommended for large public libraries.
