Christology is especially problematic for feminists.

Talk about an in-depth study! Grant goes through the Creeds, evangelicalism, feminism, and liberation theologies. A must read to dialogue with Womanist God-talk.

This is a solid overview of feminist perspectives on Christology, and I recommend those chapters. However, the author does little to actually demonstrate that "womanist" is anything other than "feminist" and "liberation" together, and she makes the claim numerous times. She gives no examples or experiences to demonstrate the unique dimensions of "womanist" that could not also be described as "liberation feminist."

This book was excellent except I felt like it took the author the whole book to get to her point and I wish it had been more integrated. Still, really interesting.
