How might Christian ethics change if we identified human and divine nature with the freedom and power of creativity? What if God was not, first and foremost, the ethical authority of the universe, and we were not meant to be God’s obedient followers? Holy Immoral retraces three familiar foci of the biblical narrative – the stories of the Garden of Eden, of the covenant on Sinai, and of the life and death of Jesus – to offer us a glimpse of a spirituality grounded in an interpretation of the self as the sacred, creative image of God, a self that it is our spiritual work to develop and enjoy. Part journal and part theology, this short, incisive analysis of biblical text throws into question some of the deepest assumptions held in Western Christianity about the self and God. Holy Immoral is a call to reflection, to discussion, and to a fresh, new way of thinking about Christian ethics.
