There are 3 comments on New Book by STH Lecturer, and Alum, Calls Out Christianity for Stigmatizing Fat People

  1. Thanks for bringing this book, and the author/staff member, to our attention! Dr. Kidd has a way of explaining things that really makes me reexamine my own assumptions. I’m looking forward to getting a copy of her book and I hope it gets the attention it (and she) deserves.

  2. Thank you Rev. Dr. Kidd for clearly addressing this form of oppression. I learned so much in this brief interview alone. I look forward to reading and sharing your book with others. The School of Theology is blessed by your many skills and talents as both a staff and faculty member as well as a double alum. Congratulations on this paradigm shifting publication!

  3. Rev. Dr. Kidd gives so much excellent, and not widely known, information here. It is clear that she is well-versed in the numerous areas that have converged into this bias. I appreciate the work she is doing and, having read her book, I am grateful to her for the information I have now to help me look at my own experience in a new way.
