Description - The Queer God by Marcella Althaus-Reid

There are those who go to queer bars and salsa clubs with rosaries in their pockets, and build camp shrines from living-room kitsch. And there are others who read sexual promiscuity as part of God's all-embracing edict to 'love one another', making their search for love and truth a physical one. The Queer God is about radical sexuality, poverty, criticism of heterosexual orthodoxy and theology. In chapters on salsa and theology, deviant theologians, queering hermeneutics, Sade and holiness, it seeks to liberate God from the closet of traditional Christian thought and embrace His part in the lives of gays and lesbians worldwide. In The Queer God , Marcella Althaus-Reid reflects on Latin American spiritual traditions and considers the need for a Queer concept of holiness and a theology of grace outside colonial parameters. It exposes the ideological sexual roots of western theology whilst taking the search for God at the margins, into new depths of social and sexual exclusion.
