"Conjuring Jesus" presents a disarmingly fresh picture of Jesus as a mystic, a mischievous reformer, and a poet of the sensuous. It portrays him in his tumults and his moments of transcendence, his musings and stories, and his diverse encounters with women and men. Continually surprising in its perspectives, while closely based on Biblical texts, "Conjuring Jesus" reveals a man who is playful and resolute: moved by a keen and encompassing acceptance, a persistent impulse toward sinuous reshaping, and a liberating awareness of his own sexuality.
