Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This important work by Sneed challenges theologies that ground themselves in Black experience - Black and Womanist, to recognize that without the inclusion of the experience of gay Black men our work is incomplete. This book will add significantly to conversations about the future of Black and Womanist theologies." - Stephen G. Ray Jr., Professor of Systematic Theology and Neal and Ila FisherChair of Theology, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary
