In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Foreword by Rachel Held Evans God’s love for us breaks every boundary. So should our love for each other. Mihee Kim-Kort is a wife, a mom, and a Presbyterian minister. And she’s queer. But instead of pushing her away from God, her queerness has brought her closer to Jesus and taught her how to love better. Outside the Lines shows us how God, in Jesus, loves us in a queer and radical way. Whenever we love ourselves and our neighbors with the boundary-breaking love of God, we live out queer spirituality in the world. With a captivating mix of personal story and biblical analysis, Outside the Lines shows us how each of our bodies fits into the body of Christ. Outside the lines and without exceptions. PRAISE FOR OUTSIDE THE LINES “This book pulses with passion, a vibrant faith, calling every reader to see beyond convention and embrace the radical love of Jesus. Let Mihee Kim-Kort’s words into your heart, and you will never be the same.” — Diana Butler Bass, author of Grateful: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks “Kim-Kort’s work is as personal as her own skin. She sees a thing, sees a body, sees a way of being and calls it by a name, queer. What was once a term of insult is now an honorary, a benediction, a name. In a time of ‘othering,’ her voice insists on naming—warmly, fiercely, pastorally.” — Nadia Bolz-Weber, author of Accidental Saints “This is a book that offers insight and clarity around queerness, faith, and what it means to be human. I can’t recommend it enough.” — Mike McHargue, author of Finding God in the Waves “With the heart of a pastor and the kindness of a friend, Kim-Kort demystifies queerness, opening up expansive possibilities for a liberated, whole life of faith.” — Jeff Chu, author of Does Jesus Really Love Me? MIHEE KIM-KORT is an ordained Presbyterian minister (PCUSA) and lives with her family in Indiana. She is author of Making Paper Cranes, editor of Streams Run Uphill, and coauthor of Yoked. Her writing can be found in the Christian Century, Sojourners, and On Being. She is pursuing a PhD in religious studies at Indiana University (Bloomington).
