  • About the Edition

    Approaching the subject of Jesus" marital status from a fresh, historical perspective and without appealing to sensationalist stories or dismissing Jesus" sexuality on theological grounds, Le Donne places Jesus firmly within his sociocultural context. By investigating gender and marriage norms -- as well as a number of social outliers who defied them -- he provocatively argues that Jesus might have been married before he was thirty years of age. Le Donne then points to several indicators that suggest that Jesus was a sexual non-conformist and probably was single during his public career. It is a quest that illuminates the humanity of Jesus, while also revealing important connections between ancient sexuality and modern spirituality.

I was the wife of Jesus ben Joseph of Nazareth. I called him Beloved and he, laughing, called me Little Thunder.” With these opening words, Sue Monk Kidd launches into her ambitious new novel, “The Book of Longings.” Ana is a force to be reckoned with.

    If you are a longtime fan of Sue Monk Kidd’s work like I am, The Book of Longings will catch your interest at once.
