Mihee Kim-Kort is a wife, a mom, and a Presbyterian minister. And she’s queer. As she became aware of her queer sexuality, Mihee wondered what that meant for her spirituality. But instead of pushing her away from God, it brought her closer to Jesus and taught her how to love better. In Outside the Lines, Mihee shows us how God, in Jesus, is oriented toward us in a radical way. Through the life, work, and witness of Jesus, we see a God who loves us with a queer love, and our faith in that God becomes a queer spirituality – a spirituality that crashes through definitions and moves us outside of the categories of our making. Whenever we love ourselves and our neighbours with the boundary-breaking love of God, we live out this spirituality in the world. With a captivating mix of personal story and biblical analysis, Outside the Lines shows us how each of our bodies fits into the body of Christ. Outside the lines and without exceptions.

Reviews/Comments

“I needed Outside the Lines more than I knew. This book made me face so many assumptions about God, others, and myself that I was unaware of. This is a book that offers insight and clarity around queerness, around faith, and around what it means to be human. I can’t recommend it enough.” — Mike McHargue
