Description

 
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: 1) samesex couples, to convey the need to re-examine sexual and relational ethics; 2) transgendered persons, to illustrate the importance of radical inclusivity; 3) and gay persons living with AIDS, to emphasize the need to de-stigmatize society’s view of any group of people.

The book, which combines both Flunder’s personal experiences with marginalized people and theological and pastoral literature on the topic, will appeal to denominational leaders and clergy who minister to the marginalized and/or the inner city.
