Author(s): Karen O'Donnell
The Body of Christ is a traumatised body because it is constituted of traumatised bodies. This monograph explores the nature of that trauma and examines the implications of identifying the trauma of this body.
Constructing new ways of thinking about the narratives at the heart of the Christian faith, Karen O'Donnell offers a fresh perspective on Christian theology, in particular the Eucharist, and presents a call to love the body in all its guises.
It offers new pathways for considering what it means to`be Christian' and explores the impact that the experience of trauma has on Christian doctrine.
Dr Karen O'Donnell is CODEC Research Fellow in Digital Pedagogy & Theology at St John's College, Durham University.
"This extraordinarily powerful book does not retreat from the blood, loss and deathliness sewn into Christian theologies across the ages. Nonetheless, it also insists on their transformative potential and capacity to bring new light to experiences of trauma and its aftermath today. O'Donnell's is a bold new voice in constructive theology." -- Susannah Cornwall, Exeter University, UK
