Jesus has worn so many masks-country boy, unacknowledged king, sex magician-that it can hardly surprise us to see him don another. Capps (pastoral theology, Princeton Theological Seminary) selects several of Jesus's "healing miracles" and makes of them something not beyond the order of nature but prodigies of psychological and psychiatric insight and healing. Capps is necessarily reliant on Freud's definitions of hysteria-broadly rejected by his own profession-so his analysis has a shaky foundation. Yet the kernel of his idea is striking, and this provocative study may give rise to others with better grounding.
