Overview

Find out why, if Jesus were alive today, he would be a witch! Carl McColman offers seekers a radical new way of being: a spirituality that equally celebrates body and soul, Jesus and the Goddess, Christian spirituality and Wiccan practice. This startling new book, rooted in the author�s experience in being both a practicing Pagan and Christian, explores how the two paths can converge. He explores the gifts that Jesus brings the Goddess, as well as those gifts that the goddess brings Jesus. McColman forcefully demonstrates how a religious practice which celebrates both female and male energies and the heavens and the earth, is sensible and necessary for spiritual health. The reader is brought to a new spiritual paradigm; a way of being rooted in both love and freedom. Embracing Jesus and the Goddess is a provocative, common sense call for Christians and Pagans alike to embrace a truly radical spirituality ready to transform individuals and society.

Author Bio: Carl McColman is an independent writer and scholar and the author of Spirituality: Where Body and Soul Encounter the Sacred (North Star Publishing 1997)

As a practicing Wiccan, that was raised in the Catholic church, reading about McColman's path to the Goddess and seeing that he to sees that there can be a balance, led me me to believe that it is a strong, possibility. He brought up questions that I had always had. Questions like, if God created man in his image, than what image was used for women? Why did a bachelor God see fit to have a child, raised out of wedlock, to a single women and then did not feel it necessary to raise her status to be revered? He also sets standards, as he sees them, (and as I had seen it also) that there was the authentic Jesus and the institutional Jesus.The institutional Jesus being one of love, peace, kindness, and equality. The Jesus of that description was the one that we all have been introduced to in our Sunday school days as children. He was portrayed as our big brother or angel. The institutional Jesus was the one that was set by man. That Jesus was one that demanded complete obedience, submission, and guilt if these standards were not met. McColman goes onto say that by bringing in the Goddess, it would balance out the two, one needing the other. I had seen a short essay done on this book and knew that someday, that the book would find it's way to me. It's a book on the theology of the two religions and how , if blended together as one, can prove to be the radical call to a new spirituality.
