Product Description

Review

That being said, I would still recommend this book, because it makes a valuable contribution to an important and timely discussion.   (INTAMS review – Journal for the Study of Marriage & Spirituality, 18 January 2012)

"Queer Theology manages to maintain both coherence and a consistently high level of theory, debate and reflection throughout. While it will certainly become indispensable for those working in theologies of gender, the body and sexuality, its broad catholicity and the intellectual accomplishment of its contributors make it attractive reading for theologians of all stripes." (Theology, March 2009)

A broad and valuable resource .It] considers real world implications .Mov[ing] toward loving and nourishing notions of God and world. (Religious Studies Review)

Review

Well researched and passionately argued, this important collection of essays makes an original contribution to queer theology and to the debate about theology and sexuality in the twenty–first century. Marcella Maria Althaus–Reid , University of Edinburgh Several elements combine to make this collection the most impressive outing yet for queer theology: the intellectual stature of so many of its contributors; the principled threading of theoretical rigor with an activist ethos that characterizes so much of its contents; and the panoramic historical sweep of the project as a whole. This volume is essential reading for all theologians and not just queer ones; for, as its editor rightly notes, theology has always been a much queerer enterprise than most of us have recognized. Stephen D. Moore , Drew University

Unqualified praise for this effort. . . 24 Feb. 2010

I'm suprised no reviews have appeared for this. Without a colleague's recommendation, I would have never picked this book off the university library shelf in the first place. Once in hand, I couldn't put it down and my own possession-by-underlining-and-writing-all-over drove me once again to one-click it on Amazon.

A review on the back cover summarizes it best for me: "Well researched and passionately argued, this important collection of essays makes an original contribution to queer theology and to the debate about theology and sexuality in the twenty-first century."

The human body appears to me to be adapting/evolving/morphing in some manner, especially in its gendering. Queer Theology is reverent and careful. Should be in every seminarian's library
