Trans/formations is a passionate book borne out of outrage felt at the ever narrowing boundaries of theology. Like anything coming from Marcella Althaus-Reid and Lisa Isherwood, it is controversial and challenging as well as highly original.
The book will: make visible a range of trans lived experience [transgendered and transsexual], offer theological reflection on these experiences, create challenging theology from this experiential base, and provide a resource for churches and theology students not to date available. It includes an excellent range of contributors, including Elizabeth Stuart and Virginia Ramey Mollenkott.
This is a valuable addition to reading lists of courses on religion, gender and the body.
