Author(s): Thomas Bohache
After reviewing traditional Christology and the various liberation Christologies including black, Hispanic, Asian, white feminist, and women of colour, the author explores whether and how "queer" might be a social location for Christological study, concluding with the view of Christ's person and work from a queer perspective.
"Christology from the Margins" not only articulates a queer Christology but also engages in a "queering" of biblical texts that have only ever been read through the lens of heterosexual perspectives in the past. With a strikingly engaging style, this author examines an area of study that will continue to attract students and scholars for the foreseeable future.
'Christology from the Margins is a marvelous and clear survey of ancient and contemporary understandings of Christology in one volume - useful for college and seminary students
