Abstract

This article explores the ways that theories of queer, evangelical, and messianic time critique linear, progressive temporalities. While these critiques produce three politically varied projects, they resonate with one another in several ways. Through close readings of queer, evangelical, and messianic texts, this article: explicates their concepts of time; distills lessons about political temporality from their shared elements; and traces their purposive maneuverings of past, present, and future. We argue that these temporalities translate theory into action and everyday practices, and enable political thought to challenge the temporal narrative and politics of secular modernity.
