“How to enter the ever-expanding field of queer theology, with its often complex theorisation of gender and sexuality, and its dense academic jargon? This book is the answer to that question. Chris Greenough has written a highly accessible yet comprehensive introduction to the subject – an important resource for students of queer studies who know little about theology, and for students of theology who know little about queer studies. Along the way he also provides critical direction, steering the reader towards new ways of engaging queer religious texts, and of thinking about queer religious lives, in contemporary global Christian contexts.” ― Adriaan van Klinken
