An interesting way to look at a significant person/character in one religion is to gather the perspectives of those who know of that person who do not follow that religion. I daresay that there could be an equally interesting take on Jesus through Atheist, Humanist or Agnostic eyes.
The first section of the book deals with Mark stripping away some of the gloss and glamour from the Jesus that churches have popularised, and concentrating on the essence of Jesus, rather than the hype and expectation loaded onto him. He talks from an interesting vantage of someone who is both a Christian priest and a Druid.
Throughout the book both Mark and some of the other writers/interviewees have spoken of the different versions of Jesus, from historical man, to a Church-perpetuated myth, to a more universal version of a Mystic or Cosmic Christ.
I found resonance, or at least a fascination, with some of the essays by the pagan writers....some more than others. I found the essays on how some of these pagans, especially the Druids amongst them, viewed Jesus drew me into their worldview.
The interviews with different established pagans was a bit hit and miss for me, but not because of the style of writing or the questions asked, but more for how I could, or could not, relate to what they said.
I'm not sure it has made me want to forge any greater bond with Jesus, any more than reading about Buddha or Ghandi would make me want to have a greater bond with them on a mystical/spiritual level...though I could see why there might be a loose spiritual affiliation, but it was an interesting read nonetheless.
