From the inside flap:
So my path appeared to be shaped by two divine figures. Now there was only one problem: Jesus and the Goddess didnt seem to have anything to do with each other. In fact, most Christians I knew thought that Goddess worship and Witchcraft were utterly evil, while the Goddess people I met expressed feelings of anger and frustration at the church. It was like making two really good friends, only to find out that they couldnt stand each other.
This provocative new book, rooted in Carl McColmans experience in being both a practicing Pagan and Christian, explores how two spiritual pathsdivergent and rooted in traditioncan converge harmoniously, bringing a new spiritual vision to individuals and to society.
Written with honesty, wit, and genuine regard for all creeds, Embracing Jesus and the Goddess is the long-awaited radical call for spiritual sanity.
