Fergus Kerr, OP, Blackfriars, Oxford Gavin DCosta is already well known for his questioning and sensitive theology of religions. In this book, he brings the same openness and sensitiity to a profound consideration of the Christian Trinity and its gendered representations in human culture. Through a series of lively and challenging engagements with the work of Luce Irigaray, Salman Rushdie and the Indian artist Jyoti Sahi, D Costa develops a searching argument for why God is beyond gender and yet necessarily synbolized in both male and female terms.

At once both deeply critical of his own Roman Catholic tradition, and yet passionate in defence of its possiblities, D Costa argues for an understaning of the Church as completing Gods incarnation - in which all follow Mary as co-redeemers with Christ - as a Marian and multi-gendered community.

Confronting the complacency of both conservative and radical, this book is a brilliant example of the new theology of culture that treats Christian tradition and contemporary concerns with equal seriousness. Gerard Loughlin, University of Durham Gavin DCosta is Senior Lecturer in Theology and Religious Studies at the University of Bristol.
