The Sacred Embrace of Jesus and Mary: The Sexual Mystery at the Heart of the Christian Tradition

Sacred Embrace Sacred Embrace Inner Traditions

Jean-Yves Leloup

Inner Traditions, 2006

In deeper pursuit of the Jesus and Mary Magdalene mystery, LeLoup presents a thorough investigation of the scripture in order to explore and understand their profoundly transformative spiritual relationship.

"Practiced and thorough with his extrapolation of the sacred texts, Leloup...addresses the current debate about the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene.... Leloup's work approaches the topics of love and sexuality with a lifetime of study, from the ancient Hebrew and Greek texts through the Christian Gnostic Gospels, before addressing the specifics of the relationship of Jesus and Mary.... This thoughtful and detailed discussion has a more academic tone than some of his other books and may seem daunting, but fans of Leloup and true seekers of the meaning of love, the holiness of sexuality and the deeper aspects of the relationship between Jesus and Mary won't be disappointed." -Publishers Weekly
