While womanist biblical interpretation is relatively new in the development of academic biblical studies, African American women are not newcomers to biblical interpretation.
Written in an accessible style, An Introduction to Womanist Biblical Interpretation, highlights the importance of both the Bible and race in the development of feminism and the emergence of womanism. This volume provides a history of feminist biblical interpretation and discusses the current state of womanist biblical interpretation as well as critical issues related to its development and future. Although some African American women identify themselves as "womanists," the term, its usage, its features, and its connection to feminism remain widely misunderstood. This innovative book is perfect for students and others who want to learn more about womanist biblical interpretation.
