Academic theology is in need of a new genre. In Transgressive Devotion Natalie Wigg-Stevenson articulates a theological vision of that genre as performance art. She argues that theology done as performance art stops trying to describe who God is, and starts trying to make God appear. Offering a daring vision of theology which will energise anybody feeling 'boxed in' by the discipline, Wigg-Stevenson blurs borders between orthodoxy, heterodoxy and heresy to reveal how the very act of doing theology makes God and humanity vulnerable to each other. This is theology which is a liturgy of Divine incantation. In other words: this is theology which is also prayer.
