My name is Patrick S. Cheng (鄭書祥), and I'm a seminary professor, theologian, attorney, and deacon in the Episcopal Church.
I am the Associate Professor of Historical and Systematic Theology at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
In addition to my teaching, I serve as the Pastoral Assistant at Emmanuel Church in the City of Boston.
I am the author of Radical Love: An Introduction to Queer Theology (2011), an accessible introduction to queer theology.
I'm also the author of From Sin to Amazing Grace: Discovering the Queer Christ (2012), which rethinks the doctrines of sin and grace for LGBT people and our allies today.
My newest book is Rainbow Theology: Bridging Race, Sexuality, and Spirit (2013). It is the first book-length treatment of theologies by LGBT people of color.
I have delivered a number of lectures across the country, including the Zerby Lecture at Bates College, the Castañeda Lecture at Chicago Theological Seminary, and the Boswell Lecture at the Pacific School of Religion.
I currently chair the Committee on the Status of LGBTIQ Persons in the Profession of the American Academy of Religion.
