Product Description

Christian theology has traditionally held desire at arm's length, regarding it warily, as something dark, dangerous, and intimately related to sin--something to be resisted and repressed, closeted and controlled.

But in Saving Desire: The Seduction of Christian Theology LeRon Shults and Jan-Olav Henriksen entreat Christians to acknowledge not only that desire is an important element of human physical and spiritual life (and therefore a subject that theology should never shy away from engaging) but also that desire can be a powerful force for great good. Shults, Henriksen, and six other boundary-crossing theologians celebrate together the positivity, the sociality, and the physicality of saving desire--humankind's innate yearning for the goodness and beauty of God.
