Kelly Denton-Borhaug U.S. War-culture, Sacrifice and Salvation., London : Equinox Publishing 2011

Despite the massive growth of the military industrial complex in the U.S., the sacred canopy of war as ‗a necessary sacrifice‘ obfuscates the pernicious reality of U.S. war-culture. This book theologically explores and ethically interrogates sacrificial frameworks and assumptions that electrify and normalize war-culture in the post-9/11 period of the U.S. It questions whether theological sacrificial frameworks may be rehabilitated, and if it is possible to “detranscendentalize” war.

Transformative Lutheran Theologies: Feminist, Womanist, and Mujerista Perspectives., In Transformative Lutheran Theologies: Feminist, Womanist, and Mujerista Perspectives. ed. Mary J. Streufert. Minneapolis: Fortress Press 2010

The first of its kind, this volume is a collaborative presentation of feminist, womanist, mujerista, and queer Lutheran theologies. It is both systematic and constructive, for it addresses classical loci in theology and is relevant for preaching, teaching, and ethical considerations, both personal and institutional. The contributors from diverse experiences and contexts seek ongoing reformation of the church and the world.
