Indecent Theology brings liberation theology up to date by introducing the radical critical approaches of gender, postcolonial, and queer theory. Grounded in actual examples from Latin America, Marcella Althaus-Reid's highly provocative, but immaculately researched book reworks three distinct areas of theology - sexual, political and systematic. It exposes the connections between theology, sexuality and politics, whilst initiating a dramatic sexual rereading of systematic theology.

Groundbreaking, intriguing and scholarly, Indecent Theology broadens the debate on sexuality and theology as never before.


'This is imaginative theology at its best - theoretically challenging, politically inspired and physically embodied … it beautifully disturbs and sets a new agenda for a 'Queer' theology … to embrace the world of unknown and unexplored theological desires.' - Jeremy Carrette, University of Stirling, Literature and Theology
