Dazzling Darkness is a profoundly personal exploration of the theological implications of sexuality, gender and illness. Drawing on insights from desert spirituality, queer theology, Greek tragedy and philosophy, Dazzling Darkness seeks to give an account of the 'dark side' of God which escapes the usual negative associations with the word 'darkness'. Published by Wild Goose on 29th October 2012.

'The book is beautifully written and expresses complex ideas in simple and elegant form', Richard Brown, Amazon.
