The Queer Bible Commentary brings together the work of several scholars and pastors known for their interest in the areas of gender, sexuality and biblical studies. Rather than a traditional verse-by-verse analysis, this volume focuses specifically upon those portions of the Bible that have particular relevance for readers interested in LGBT issues such as the construction of gender and sexuality, the reification of heterosexuality, the question of lesbian and gay ancestry within the Bible, the transgendered voices of the prophets, the use of the Bible in contemporary political, socio-economic and religious spheres and the impact upon LGBT communities. Accordingly, the commentary raises new questions and re-directs more traditional questions in fresh and innovative ways, offering new angles of approach.
“A door-stopper of a book!” – Tina Beardsley
