A conversation with Gender studies scholar Susan Shaw about sexual abuse, images of God, joy, and more

Welcome to Madang. 

Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renowned authors, leaders, public figures, and scholars on religion, culture, and everything in between.

This is the 37th episode of Madang, in which I converse with Susan M. Shaw on the new book she and I co-wrote, Surviving God: A New Vision of God through the Eyes of Sexual Abuse Survivors. Susan Shaw is Professor of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Oregon State University. She is the author of many books, including Reflective Faith, Women’s Voices, Feminist Visions and Intersectional Theology. She blogs at Baptist News Global on issues of social difference, social justice, and religious liberty.

In this episode, we talk about surviving sexual abuse, images of God, the particularities of abuse in the church, intersectionality, joy, and more.
