Toward a theology of eros transfiguring passion at the limits of discipline( )

9 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 1,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What does theology have to say about the place of eroticism in the salvific transformation of men and women, even of the cosmos itself? How, in turn, does eros infuse theological practice and transfigure doctrinal tropes? This book explores a largely uncharted territory in the realm of theological erotics
Process and difference between cosmological and poststructuralist postmodernisms( )

8 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 1,098 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The similarities and creative tensions between French-based poststructuralism and Whiteheadian process thought are examined here by leading scholars. Although both approaches are labeled "postmodern," their own proponents often take them to be so dissimilar as to be opposed. Contributors to this book, however, argue that processing these differences of theory at a deeper level may cultivate fertile and innovative modes of reflection. Through their comparisons, contrasts, and hybridizations of process and poststructuralist theories, the contributors variously redefine concepts of divinity and cosmos, advance the interaction between science and religion, and engage the sex/gender and religious ethics of otherness and subjectivity."--Jacket
Ecospirit religions and philosophies for the earth by Laurel Kearns( )

9 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We hope--even as we doubt--that the environmental crisis can be controlled. Public awareness of our species' self-destructiveness as material beings in a material world is growing--but so is the destructiveness. The practical interventions needed for saving and restoring the earth will require a collective shift of such magnitude as to take on a spiritual and religious intensity. This transformation has in part already begun. Traditions of ecological theology and ecologically aware religious practice have been preparing the way for decades. Yet these traditions still remain marginal to society, academy, and church. This book probes the possibility of a green shift radical enough to permeate the ancient roots of our sensibility and the social sources of our practice. From new language for imagining the earth as a living ground to current constructions of nature in theology, science, and philosophy; from environmentalism's questioning of postmodern thought to a garden of green doctrines, rituals, and liturgies for contemporary religion, these chapters explore and expand our sense of how to proceed in the face of an ecological crisis that demands new thinking and acting."--Publisher's abstract
Apocalypse now and then a feminist guide to the end of the world by Catherine Keller( )

7 editions published between 1996 and 2005 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the ways that the Christian prophecy of apocalypse--the fiery end of the world on Earth--has shaped Western thought and history. Through innovative readings of the Bible, theology and philosophy, feminist and poststructuralist theory, fiction and poetry, Western history and current politics, Keller shows how the myth of the apocalypse has shaped our basic habits of text, time, place, community, and gender

Face of the deep : a theology of becoming by Catherine Keller( Book )

12 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 596 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Keller's tehomic theology (from the Hebrew tehom, which suggests the depth of the ocean) draws from Whitehead, Joyce, and Melville. She retrieves the suppressed force of primordial chaos in the hope of putting it to a feminist end without jettisoning the structure of Christian theology
Polydoxy theology of multiplicity and relation by Catherine Keller( )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious pluralism, the collapse of traditional religious institutions, and the growing impact of religious studies on believers have prompted widespread rethinking of what religion is. "Polydoxy" offers a brilliant and original theological response to this intellectual crisis by suggesting that there are multiple forms of right belief. Inspired by the work of Catherine Keller, author of "The Face of the Deep", "Polydoxy" introduces a new theological approach which is both grounded and groundbreaking. Reacting against reductive or nostalgic theological tendencies
Postcolonial theologies : divinity and empire( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 383 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A theology in tune with postcolonial theory has the potential to creatively inform and transform ecclesial practice. Focusing on the relation of theology to postcolonial theory, Postcolonial Theologies brings together a wide diversity of authors, many of them fresh and exciting theological voices, in essays that are stunningly creative and prophetically lucid. All essays are theologically constructive, not merely deconstructive or critical, in their visions for Christianity. Forming a sort of doctrinal landscape, they emerge under the themes of theological anthropology shaped by ethnicity, class, and privilege; a Christology that intersects the claims of Christ and empire; and a Cosmology that imagines a postcolonial world
Apophatic bodies negative theology, incarnation, and relationality( )

12 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work pursues the unlikely conjunction of apophasis and the body, not for the cachet of the 'cutting edge' but rather out of an ethical passion for the integrity of all creaturely bodies as they are caught up in various ideological mechanisms that threaten their dignity and material well-being
God and power : counter-apocalyptic journeys by Catherine Keller( Book )

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the mystery : discerning divinity in process by Catherine Keller( Book )

7 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 210 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With immediate impact and deep creativity, Catherine Keller offers this brief and unconventional introduction to theological thinking, especially as recast by process thought. Keller takes up theology itself as a quest for religious authenticity. Through a marvelous combination of brilliant writing, story, reflection, and unabashed questioning of old shibboleths, Keller redeems theology from its dry and predictable categories to reveal what has always been at the heart of the theological enterprise: a personal search for intellectually honest and credible ways of making sense of the loving myst
Cloud of the Impossible Negative Theology and Planetary Entanglement by Catherine Keller( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What generates the cloud of the impossible is what becomes possible in the very face of what appears to be impossible, whether it be radical democracy or the reversal of climate change. The experience of the impossible peaked at the end of the last century—politically, sexually, economically, and ecologically. The dream of progress became the trauma of reality, and confidence in better outcomes waned. Yet the connectivity and collectivity of social movements, of the fragile, unlikely webs of an alternative notion of existence, keep materializing—a haunting hope, dense in relationships, suggest

Taken from the lips gender and eros in Mesoamerican religions by Sylvia Marcos( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume deals with the world of women in Mesoamerica, discussing particularly the religious and ritual aspects of gender. As its sources, it uses colonial documents of the contact period with European cultures, testimonies of the subjugated indigenous during the colonial period, as well as contemporary ethnographic studies. The book starts with an analysis of healing rituals in contemporary Mexico, focusing on the "refunctionalization" of ancient beliefs and practices. From there it moves spiral-like between pre-hispanic and colonial pasts and diverse presents. The section on "orality" is a methodological proposal for the study of indigenous religious traditions. The book is illustrated with reproductions of ancient codices
