When Momma Speaks : The Bible and Motherhood from a Womanist Perspective Paperback / softback
Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder provides an engaging womanist reading of mother characters in the Old and New Testaments.
After providing a brief history of womanist biblical interpretation, she shows how the stories of several biblical mothers-Hagar, Rizpah, Bathsheba, Mary, the Canaanite woman, and Zebedee's wife-can be powerful sources for critical reflection, identification, and empowerment.
Crowder also explores historical understandings of motherhood in the African American community and how these help to inform present-day perspectives.
She includes questions for discussion with each chapter.
