Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Today's shifting discourses regarding life and death are about theology, medicine, economics, and politics as much as they are about life and death. At the heart of one of these discourses is HIV and AIDS, a pandemic that allows for a slippery discussion about its origins and nature. Those who live in the borderland this pandemic creates are often blamed for the affliction; they are seen as 'dirty.' Yet, those who live or work with persons with HIV and AIDS know another story of marginalizing macrostructures that indicate that the issue is as much structural injustice as individual responsibility. Theology in the Age of Global AIDS and HIV is a courageous and challenging call to look at how dominant theologies have participated in the creation of 'risk environments' for susceptibility to this virus and to act so that our weeping and raging with the suffering helps us learn how to care for one another and be responsible theo-ethicists and global citizens in this age of global AIDS and HIV.

About the Author

Cassie Trentaz lives in Portland Oregon where she is an assistant professor of Theology, Ethics, and Church History at Warner Pacific College. Her teaching and research interests lie in the contextual intersections of theology, ethics, anthropology, and history and her commitments include theological and ethical reflections on the ways racism, classism, sexism, ecological concerns and other structures of power differentials that influence human experience and community. She is also interested in what thoughtful, engaged theo-ethics have to say back to those structures in the complex contexts of our times and our places. She is a teacher, activist, and minister.
