Relational Theology, Queer Hermeneutics, and Music with Dirk von der Horst, pt. 1

What is relational theology, and what does it have to do with David and Jonathan of the Hebrew scriptures? In this episode, which is the first part of my conversation with Dirk von der Horst, we learn how he came to write the book Jonathan’s Loves, David’s Laments , and get into a discussion on what relational theology is.

For some further reading on relational theology, check out these works:
