Read the Table of Contents and Introduction
"If preaching is to truly reach the hearts, minds, and souls of African American women, preachers must employ an analysis of scripture that reconstructs the Word of God in ways that are liberating to women as well as men, and reflects the totality of the African American experience." From the Introduction
Author and pastor Elaine Flake crafts a womanist theology and praxis of preaching to the population most overlooked and overwhelmed in our pews: wounded womenwomen who are wounded by virtue of their gender and more particularly black women who are also wounded by virtue of their race.
Discover how to unfold in every sermon the good news that brings healing, instead of more hurt, to black women. Flake offers samples from her own ministry, sermons that explore the lives of misunderstood women from the Bible, including:
• The wives of Job and Lot• The daughters of Zelophehad• Hagar, the Egyptian• Leah, the unloved• The poor widow• And the "woman with the issue of blood"
Elaine Flake is co-pastor of the Greater Allen A.M.E. Cathedral. She is the co-founder with her husband, Floyd Flake, of the Allen Christian School in Jamaica, NY, and they collaborated to write Practical Virtues (Amistad). She is the author of God in Her Midst, and has contributed to Those Preaching Women, Volume 4 (Judson Press). Her several degrees include a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in New York, and Doctor of Ministry from United Theological Seminary.
