That We Might Become God: The Queerness of Creedal Christianity by Andy Buechel

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.
