The Four Vision Quests of Jesus

'“In a time when there is a famine of hearing the words of the Lord, Charleston makes an instructive and provocative offering for all on the spiritual journey. The Christ is to be found in every context, and Charleston shares an indigenous encounter with the word-thought-logos of God. This is a deeply significant contribution to Anglican theology through a lens that is likely more congruent with biblical roots in the tribes of the Middle East than currently understood in the West.” —The Most Reverend Katharine Jefferts Schori, former presiding bishop and primate of the Episcopal Church   “The Four Vision Quests of Jesus is a startling synoptic vision into the heart of a Native American Testament that will stand alone for years to come. Charleston has captured both the essence of Native American traditional theologies and the power of the Native Jesus in a spiritual quest that draws peoples and nations into common kinship. From the sweat lodge to the cross—a sacred giveaway, a holy dance, poetry of faith clothed in Native American experience.” —Thom White Wolf Fassett, author of Giving Our Hearts Away: Native American Survival   “Compelling, compassionate, consummate—this is among the finest articulations of episcopal wisdom I have ever read. With principled clarity, Bishop Steven Charleston lays bare the tragic facts of indigenous experience even as simultaneously he weaves with prophetic courage and deep love the enduring message of Christian hope. In this book, his best yet, is contained inestimable riches for those seeking for a dignified and faith filled way through the personal and political dilemmas inherent in contemporary identity politics.” —Jenny Te Paa Daniel, PhD, theologian, grandmother, and fisherwoman   “Steven Charleston, both a Choctaw Indian and a Christian bishop, gives the reader an engaging journey through the Gospel of Matthew. You are drawn into successive visions of Jesus as interpreted from a Native American perspective. The work is an evocative combination of Christianity and Native American tradition.” —Blue Clark, professor at Oklahoma City University'
