Intersex, Theology, and the Bible

Full Product Description

Intersex people's bodies, not easily classifiable as male or female, challenge the binary sex system operative in Western societies. Intersex bodies have often been pathologized, problematized, or altered via surgical intervention to make them less exceptional. Such bodies have been figured as troubling: by doctors; by parents; by religious institutions; and by society at large. In this volume, scholars engage with intersex from a range of perspectives, including constructive and pastoral theologies, biblical studies, and sociology of religion, and suggest that intersex's capacity to 'trouble' might also be understood positively, challenging unquestioned norms and dubious assumptions in religion and beyond.

Intersex, Theology, and the Bible was published by Palgrave Macmillan in July 2015. The ISBN for Intersex, Theology, and the Bible is 9781137366153.
