Radical Love

Full Product Description

Contextual theologies have developed from a number of perspectives - including feminist theology, black theology, womanist theology, Latin American liberation theology, and Asian American theology - and a wide variety of academic and general introductions exist to examine each one. However, Radical Love is the first introductory textbook on the subject of queer theology. Queer theology is concerned with questions about the meaning of existence, as posed by lesbian, gay, transgender, bisexual, and other "queer" seekers. The classic problems of theology apply: the problems of both natural and human evil; the problem of "God," or the ultimate source of the universe; the problem of the purpose of human life; the problem of ethical conduct; and the problem of human desire for eternal life. Part one of this new book provides a historical survey of how queer theology has developed from the 1950's to today. Part two is a substantive, but highly readable introduction to the themes of queer theology using the ecumenical creeds as a general framework.Topics include revelation, god, trinity, creation, Jesus Christ, atonement, sin, grace, Holy Spirit, church, sacraments, and last things, as seen through the lenses of LGBT theologians. For classroom use in undergraduate departments of religious studies (queer studies, gender issues); seminaries (theology, ethics, issues in contemporary society), and parish adult education classes.
