Marcella Althaus-Reid has developed a new approach to doing theology, which examines Liberation Theology and Feminist Theology and marks a shift from these traditional critiques, resulting in what she refers to as 'Indecent Theology'. Althaus-Reid uses Queer theory and Postcolonial analysis to show more clearly how this shift, especially from gender to sexuality , has occurred.

This book also looks towards the future possiblities of a theology done in times of globalisation. To help to clarify this theoretical subject, the book is broken down into three areas:

Section One deals with the genesis of Indecent theology, and includes material that is foundational, but not widely available until now.

Section Two looks more closely at just what Indecent Theology is, and the Section Three considers the future of Indecent Theologies, and ties up the questions raised in the earlier sections.
