A Theology of Radical Inclusion

$23.00

In Where the Edge Gathers, Flunder uses examples of persons most marginalized by church and society to illustrate the use of "village ethics"--knowing where the boundaries are when all things are exposed--and "village theology"--giving everyone a seat at the central meeting place or welcome table.

She focuses on the following marginalized groups:
- Same-sex couples, to convey the need to re-examine sexual and relational ethics
- Transgendered persons, to illustrate the importance of radical inclusivity
- Gay persons living with AIDS, to emphasize the need to de-stigmatize society's view of any group of people

This book, which combines both Flunder's personal experiences of working with marginalized persons and literature on the topic--will appeal to denominational leaders and clergy who minister to the marginalized or the inner city.

YVETTE A. FLUNDER, an inner-city pastor for twenty years, is senior pastor of City of Refuge United Church of Christ in San Francisco, California. She received her M.Div. from Pacific School of Religion in Berkeley and her D.Min. from San Francisco Theological Seminary. Flunder is also a renowned gospel recording artist.
