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.

An interesting concept that makes sense.

Loved this book.

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."

shay
a decent book. i think her ending analysis could have been longer and more in-depth.
