Father James Martin SJ (shown), a Jesuit priest, LGBTQ advocate, and editor-at-large of the Jesuit magazine America, made waves on social media by showcasing an illustration that depicts Jesus as a gay man driving the money changers out of the temple.

The painting Martin shared came from the book Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision, a collection of works by homoerotic painter Douglas Blanchard.

“Meet Jesus as a gay man of today in a contemporary city with The Passion of Christ: A Gay Vision,” reads the Amazon product description for the book.

In stunning new images, the modern Christ figure is jeered by fundamentalists, tortured by Marine look-alikes, and rises again to enjoy homoerotic moments with God. His surprisingly diverse friends join him on a journey from suffering to freedom. Readers call it “accessible but profound.” Some are moved to tears.
