Queer Holiness: The Gift of LGBTQI People to the Church

LGBTQI people in the church have spent a long time being told what God expects of them and how they should behave. In Queer Holiness Charlie Bell argues that to push such a theology is not only deficient, but fundamentally untheological, and challenges Christians to seriously grapple with the consequences of doing so.

LGBTQI people in the church have spent a long time being told what God expects of them and how they should behave. From prohibitions on who they might love or marry, to erasure and denial, the theological record is one in which LGBTQI people are far too often objectified and their lives seen as the property of others.

In no other significant religious question are 'theological' arguments made that so clearly reject overwhelming scientific and experiential knowledge about the human person. This book seeks to find a better way to do theology - not about, but with and of LGBTQI people - taking insights from the sciences and personal narratives as it seeks to answer the question: 'What does human flourishing look like?'
