Publisher's Description

Claire Henderson Davis is a theologian, dance artist and writer. In her first book, "After the Church", she weaves her own story of coming to terms with her Christian identity (she is the daughter of Roman Catholic priest and theologian Charles Davis), through a re-telling of the Christian narrative in a contemporary idiom. This striking and original book recognizes that though the institutional church may be collapsing, the Christian story has a richness and depth that we would be foolish to ignore in our search for wholeness and integrity. In six chapters - Storytelling, Beginning and Ending, Incarnation, The Trinity, The Body of Christ, and, With My Body I Thee Worship, she reworks traditional spiritual themes in a radically contemporary way, offering a pattern for faith and belief that will resonate with all spiritual seekers today.

Editorial Reviews

'How refreshing! A book that sees the dynamics of sex as a positive analogy for how human beings in all their diversity can love each other in a world where all people are loved equally by God. Christians through the centuries who have seen sex as a threat to spiritual growth will be turning in their graves. Long may that continue!'
