Event description
Join us in conversation with Revd. Jarel Robinson Brown.

About this event

Join Revd. Jarel Robinson-Brown and Professor Esther McIntosh as they explore the themes in Jarel’s book “Black, Gay, British, Christian, Queer: The Church and the Famine of Grace”

In his book, Jarel discusses the place of Christian faith and Christian theology as it relates to the Black Queer body and explores how what the Church says about the grace of God often contradicts the lived experience of Black British LGBTQ+ Christians. He calls this disconnect in experience the result of a famine of grace in the Church, and offers this work as a way of reflecting on what God really has to say about Black Queer bodies today.

Jarel Robinson-Brown is Vice-Chair of OneBodyOneFaith a global Christian charity committed to the full inclusion of LGBT+ Christians and their empowerment. He most recently served as Associate Chaplain at King's College London and is a graduate in theology from both Cardiff and Durham Universities. His most recent book is on Black British Queer Bodies and the theology of Grace.'

Professor Esther McIntosh holds a BD (Hons) and PhD from the University of Aberdeen. She held a lectureship in Religion, Gender and Ethics at the University of Leeds until 2008, before joining York St John University. She is now Professor of Feminist Theology and Ethics. Her work is interdisciplinary, and underpinned by a concern for gender justice. Her publications include John Macmurray’s Religious Philosophy: What it Means to be a Person and ‘‘I Met God, She’s Black’: Racial, Gender and Sexual Equalities in Public Theology’. She recently completed, with Dr Sharon Jagger, a two-year project exploring chaplaincy support for trans and non-binary staff and students at Anglican foundation universities, funded by the Church Universities Fund and York St John University.
