The experience of reproductive loss raises a series of profoundly theological questions: how can God have a plan for my life? Why didn’t God answer my prayers? How can I have hope after such an experience? Who am I after such a loss?
Sadly, these are questions that, along with reproductive loss, have largely been ignored in theology.
In The Dark Womb, Karen O’Donnell tackles these questions head on, drawing on her own experiences of repeated reproductive loss as she re-conceives theology from the perspective of the miscarrying person.
Offering a fresh, original, and creative approach to theology, The Dark Womb explores the complexity of the miscarrying body and its potential for theological revelation.
On Tuesday 5th April at 7.30pm (BST), Karen will discuss the book along with Shelly Rambo, Associate Professor of Theology, Boston University School of Theology and Siobhán Garrigan, Loyola Chair of Theology, Trinity College, Dublin.
This discussion will be streamed and recorded via YouTube. Details of how to watch will be sent to ticket holders one day before the event.
