Introducing Womanist Theology
By: Stephanie Y. Mitchem
This book demonstrates how theology by women of color is firmly rooted in their varied life experiences. By participating fully in the construction of theology instead of simply learning theology from others, black women are able to analyze church teachings, develop meaningful systems of ethics, and challenge ecclesiastical structures, if needed.
Introducing Womanist Theology describes the unique experiences of African American women and explores not only what theology is, but how it is constructed. It lays out the major components of womanist theology while showing the close links between womanist theology and womanist ethics.
Stephanie Y. Mitchem is a professor of theology and ethics at the University of Detroit Mercy in Michigan. She is a contributing editor to Cross Currents.
