Overview

Black women in America have carved out a distinctive and instructive faith stance that is influential well beyond the historic black church. Diana L. Hayes, a leading commentator and forger of womanist thought, especially in the black Catholic setting, here offers strong brew for what ails the church, the Christian tradition, and the world.

Hayes specifically shows how womanist commitments in the Christian tradition provide a specific critical lens for seeing the strengths and weaknesses of a Christianity that has often flourished at the expense of or neglect of African Americans. As sometime strangers and sojourners in their own church, black women have a unique take on the church's stance on race, class, and gender issues. Yet their unquestioned devotion lends a hope and optimism often missing from critical thought and, as Hayes shows in this powerful volume, invites the church itself to a new conversion and role. Her book unfolds in four parts:
Introduction: Standing in the Shoes My Mother Made
•Part 1: Faith and Worship
•Part 2: Ministry and Social Justice
•Part 3: The Public Face of Faith
•Part 4: A Womanist Faith Challenge

    A Thought-Provoking Book

    Dr. Hayes is one of the more prominent Black Catholic theologians in the United States. At first glance, a prospective reader of Dr. Hayes' work might be tempted to resist engaging her work because she might appear as being too progressive or liberal. But do not let that stop you from picking up this good book. I would not agree with every conclusion that she draws, but I do find her ideas and reflections informative and thought-provoking. Chapter 5, for example, "Who Do You Say That I Am? Speaking the Truth to the People" includes a reflection on people who are gay and lesbian. As a more traditional or conservatively-minded person on social issues, I found myself a bit uncomfortable with some of Dr. Hayes points. But she did, on the other hand, make think about (1) the attempt to use Scripture as a way of subjugating others and (2) the way those who have been historically oppressed might treat those on the fringe of society today. I also appreciate how she challenges the Church to live the Faith and values it professes without attacking it personally. In other words, I do not doubt that Dr. Hayes is someone who loves the Catholic Church. I can not say that I always agree with every point or issue that she takes up, but I am at least willing to listen to what she has to say because, as this book demonstrates, she loves the Church enough to try to help it be better.
