Bodies on the Verge: Queering Pauline Epistles (2019)
Author(s): Joseph A Marchal
Amazon UK: Bodies on the Verge
Standpoint: 1 Fully inclusive and affirming
Genre(s): Academic writing and Theology
Topic(s): Biblical studies, Homosexuality in the Bible, and Queer theology
Especially suitable for: Academics
Rather than focusing on the more common defensive responses to those expected proof-texts that supposedly address homosexuality, the essays in this collection reflect the range, rigour, vitality, and creativity of other interpretive options influenced by queer studies. Thus key concepts and practices for understanding these letters in terms of history, theology, empire, gender, race, and ethnicity, among others, are rethought through queer interventions within both ancient settings and more recent history and literature.
