What does Jesus reveal about himself through his encounters with women in the gospel stories, both as a real historical figure, and as a continuing living presence?
^^In responding to this question, Joanna Collicutt McGrath does not shy away from acknowledging the strong erotic overtones of seeing Jesus as a sort of 'romantic hero'. In the first chapter of the book she muses on what makes the character of Mr Darcy so alluring, and the resonances with Jesus. She then helps us explore several significant aspects of the psychology of Jesus as expressed in his engagement with women. The recurring and deeply affirming theme of the volume is that through encounter with Jesus, women are raised up.
^^'This is a book of deep wisdom, beautifully expressed'
