* Designed for both church and academic audiences * Ecumenical appeal Residing at the intersection of constructive theology and critical social theory, this book provides a resource for both students and clergy to reinterpret Christian theology and re-imagine Christian faith in the twenty-first century. The author seeks "to encourage and equip Christian faith communities to move beyond the decades-long stalemate over human sexuality and gender identity" because "Queer gifts emerge in Christian communities when lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people no longer feel compelled to justify their presence in those communities." Useful in both seminary classrooms and in congregational settings, the book is a contribution to the still-emerging field of queer theology, translating the rigors of scholarly research into transforming proposals for faith communities.

Is it possible for orthodox, creedal Christianity to change its views on matters of sexuality and gender? In order to do so, must it simply incorporate elements of the secular world that are foreign to it? In That We Might Become God, Andy Buechel argues that many of the basic insights of queer theory are not only deeply amenable to the wider Christian tradition, but that they allow us to see that tradition with fresh eyes. The churches that are most concerned with maintaining theological tradition can, in fact, develop on these matters and, in so doing, deepen some of the most fundamental insights they cherish. Looking specifically at Christian teaching surrounding the Incarnation of Jesus Christ, the sacraments, and eschatology, Andy Buechel shows how deeply queer these areas are already. The insistence of too many churches to clinging to modern notions of sexuality and gender impede the proclamation of the good news, and this is needless. By attending to the ancient tradition in contemporary ways, this text demonstrates the coherence of that heritage today, as well as its capacity to develop to encompass all those whom God has created.

This practical pastoral care handbook, written by two self-described queer people of faith, covers the basic skills that religious caregivers and ministry students need in order to be effective, enlightened, and supportive pastoral care providers to LGBTQ persons in congregational and other community settings. Authors Schlager and Kundtz distinguish pastoral care from pastoral counseling: while the latter is reserved for those with special training in the practice of therapy, the former can be developed by ministers and lay people with sufficient education and practice. This book requires of the reader no previous experience with LGBTQ communities and treats the following topics: the definition and functions of pastoral care; effective care in challenging times; coming out of the closet; creating communities of care; and caring for a wide variety of LGBTQ relationships. The authors provide case studies throughout the book to ground and illustrate their theology of pastoral care.
