Well-known womanist theologians explore the persistent and perennial question of evil and suffering in compelling new ways.
Committed to an integrated analysis of race, gender, and class, the contributors to A Troubling in My Soul also address the shortcomings of traditional, feminist, and Black theologies when dealing with evil. Contributors include:
Clarice J. Martin, Frances E. Wood, Jamie T. Phelps, Marcia Y. Riggs, Emilie M. Townes, Rosita dean Mathews, M. Shawn Copeland, Delores S. Williams, Cheryl A. Kirk-Duggan, Karen Baker-Fletcher, Patricia L. Hunter, Jacquelyn Grant, Katie Geneva Cannon, and Cheryl Townsend-Gilkes.
Vigorous and forthright, A Troubling in My Soul is must-reading for students, scholars, and others interested in African American, women's and contemporary religious studies.
