"God's Beauty Parlor" opens the Bible to the contested body of critical commentary on sex and sexuality known as queer theory and to masculinity studies. The author pursues the themes of homoeroticism, masculinity, beauty, and violence through such texts as the Song of Songs, the Gospels, the Letter to the Romans, and the Book of Revelation.

Stephen D. Moore is Professor of New Testament at Drew University Theological School. His most recent book is "God's Gym: Divine Male Bodies of the Bible."


'This is a brilliant piece of work. Moore combines broad and deep knowledge of biblical scholarship with creative, controversial, even fanciful exegesis.Addressing both the homoeroticism and violence of biblical and other Jewish and Christian texts, he takes the material seriously and playfully at the same time, a feat few writers are capable of carrying off. If people pay attention to Moore's interpretations - and they should, biblical scholars as well aslay persons - they should never be able to read these texts with the same benign expressions as before.'
