Intersex, Theology, and the Bible PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Intersex, Theology, and the Bible free pdf Intersex bodies, not easily classifiable as male or female, challenge the binary sex system operative in Western societies. They have often been pathologized, problematized, or altered via surgical intervention to make them less exceptional. Such bodies have been figured as troubling: by doctors- by parents- by religious institutions- and by society at large. In this volume, scholars engage with intersex from a range of perspectives, including constructive and pastoral theologies, biblical studies, and sociology of religion. This volume suggests that intersex's capacity to 'trouble' might also be understood positively, challenging unquestioned norms and dubious assumptions in religion and beyond.
