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.

Thomas Bohache

He has published in the fields of New Testament and liberation theology and is currently in a doctoral program at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA.

'Christology from the Margins is a marvelous and clear survey of ancient and contemporary understandings of Christology in one volume - useful for college and seminary students

Robert E. Goss, Senior Pastor and Theologian of MCC in the Valley

An excellent and up-to-date survey of Christologies from multiple contexts. It provides new resources to think about the relation between Christ and human sexual orientation. I highly recommend this text to faculty, students, clergy and lay readers who are looking for fresh and exciting ways to think about the meaning of Christ in today's post-modern world
