About this book

The Black Church is an institution that emerged in rebellion against injustice perpetrated upon black bodies. How is it, then, that black women's oppression persists in black churches? This book engages the Chalcedonian Definition as the starting point for exploring the body as a moral dilemma.

Reviews

"Groundbreaking. Challenging. Provocative. Constructive. Marshall Turman holds traditions and liberative frameworks in fine methodological tension. With the simple question 'How does Black women's oppression persistent under the guise of liberation in Black churches?' Marshall Turman has produced a compelling womanist incarnational ethic that stares down fragmentation and offers us the keys to a deeply enfleshed wholeness." - Emilie M. Townes, Dean and E.Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Societ, Vanderbilt University Divinity School, USA
