Rainbow Theology
Bridging Race, Sexuality, and Spirit

Patrick S. Cheng

Rainbow Theology In Rainbow Theology Bridging Race, Sexuality, and Spirit; Patrick S. Cheng does what no one else has done to date: he systematically examines the theological writings of "Queer" people of color in order to reflect upon the theological significance of the intersections of race and queer sexuality across multiple ethnic and cultural groups. Patrick Cheng's pioneering work is particularly important in light of the current polarizing debates over issues of race, sexuality, and religion within churches. Cheng's study questions at the end of each chapter in Rainbow Theology will help you to answer who Jesus is in your life.
