As Patrick Cheng insightfully argues, Jesus Christ can be understood by lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people as the embodiment of a love so extreme that it dissolves all existing boundaries. In discussing revelation, God, Trinity, creation, atonement, sin, grace, Holy Spirit, church, and sacraments, Patrick Cheng – a theologian, seminary professor, and ordained minister – provides a historical survey of how queer theology has developed from the 1950s to today, and then illuminates its themes using the ecumenical creeds as his guide. He discusses Jesus’s communion with all people – holy and profane. He explores Jesus’s crossing of all barriers – from divine to sexual. Above all, he reminds us that those barriers are societal, rather than religious, concepts.
