Summary

After reviewing traditional Christology and the various liberation Christologies including black, Hispanic, Asian, white feminist, and women of colour, the author explores whether and how "queer" might be a social location for Christological study, concluding with the view of Christ's person and work from a queer perspective. "Christology from the Margins" not only articulates a queer Christology but also engages in a "queering" of biblical texts that have only ever been read through the lens of heterosexual perspectives in the past. With a strikingly engaging style, this author examines an area of study that will continue to attract students and scholars for the foreseeable future.

Author Biography

Thomas Bohache serves as clergy in the Metropolitan-Community Churches and holds a doctorate in feminist liberation theologies from the Episcopal Divinity School.
