9780415323239: The Queer God

There are those who go to gay bars and salsa clubs with rosaries in their pockets, and who make camp chapels of their living rooms. Others enter churches with love letters hidden in their bags, because their need for God and their need for love refuse to fit into different compartments. But what goodness and righteousness can prevail if you are in love with someone whom you are ecclesiastically not supposed to love? Where is God in a salsa bar?
The Queer God introduces a new theology from the margins of sexual deviance and economic exclusion. Its chapters on Bisexual Theology, Sadean holiness, gay worship in Brazil and Queer sainthood mark the search for a different face of God - the Queer God who challenges the oppressive powers of heterosexual orthodoxy, whiteness and global capitalism. Inspired by the transgressive spaces of Latin American spirituality, where the experiences of slum children merge with Queer interpretations of grace and holiness, The Queer God seeks to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought, and to embrace God's part in the lives of gays, lesbians and the poor.
Only a theology that dares to be radical can show us the presence of God in our times. The Queer God creates a concept of holiness that overcomes sexual and colonial prejudices and shows how Queer Theology is ultimately the search for God's own deliverance. Using Liberation Theology and Queer Theory, it exposes the sexual roots that underlie all theology, and takes the search for God to new depths of social and sexual exclusion.

About the Author:

Marcella Althaus-Reid is Senior Lecturer in Christian Ethics, Practical & Systematic Theology at the University of Edinburgh

Review:

'This is a provocative book ... there is a tremendous energy, a delight, an exuberance.' - Dr. Kevin Ward, Church Times


'Althaus-Reid's reinterpretation of the eros of the Trinity is particularly compelling ... This is an important book.' - The Expository Times


'This is an important book. It is also a witty, poetic and disreputable text with bodily imaginings and 'pluralfidelity' that many will find disturbing ... but I recommend it for preachers, theologians and teachers who dare to take a walk on the wild side.' - The Expository Times
