"Fascinating and absorbing ... extraordinary stories of ordinary people crafted into a bottom-up queer theology by a master story-teller. These voices need to be heard."
"As a work of practical, queer, feminist, and sexual theology, Undoing Theology draws attention to the power, and the limits, of telling and listening to the stories of 'sexual migrants' in contemporary Christianity. Chris Greenough's readable and accessible book exposes and challenges the culminating impact of heteronormative and 'vanilla' theology on the lives of everyday Christians, whose experiences of inter-sex identity, ex-gay ministries, and BDSM practices are rarely - but should be - heard."
"Undoing Theology is a work of brilliance that is refreshing and profoundly challenging. In a creative and much-needed turn to ethnography, the book extends queer theology by showing how the real life stories of 'sexual migrants' can undo normative theologies and expose their shaky foundations. The author sensitively and skilfully documents the sexual stories of three non-normative Christians - Alyce, Caddyman and Cath - inviting them to speak for themselves in their own words. Captivating and thought provoking, their stories encourage us to celebrate the fragility and complexity of our sexual lives and to see the temporality of experience as a necessary foundation to all theological inquiry. Through the course of discussion, the sharing of sexual stories emerges as a radical theological praxis that not only points towards the sexual and queer nature of all theology but which also exposes the potential of non-normative Christian experience to trouble and pervert stilted theological ideas. This book brings home the transformative possibilities of deliberately beginning our theologies from the wonderful messiness of our sexual lives."
