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.
