Good sermons act as the moral compass of their times. And so the discovery of these thirty-eight never-before-published sermons by black women preachers is an invaluable find, enabling us to explore the critical path taken in the struggle against racial and gender inequality, poverty and moral decay. This book fills an important gap in our understanding of African American experience by providing the long overdue access to the original text of the sermons coupled with expert contextual analysis by Dr. Bettye Collier-Thomas, a respected scholar of African History. This book brings together the voices of fourteen black women preachers along with historical and biographical information that places them in the context of their times. Spanning the days of slavery on through the long struggle to gain the most basic of civil rights, these remarkable women deliver messages of hope and faith that cut to the heart and moved their followers. The women represented here include figures known to scholars and women who have gone unnoticed despite their great impact. Encompassing themes ranging from racial and gender discrimination in the church and society to the tenets of their shared theology, their sermons reveal women of great faith, courage, and wisdom.

In ever increasing numbers, they are announcing their calls to the gospel ministry and making haste to establish themselves in viable ministries throughout the country. Their presence in all levels of ordained Christian service-including preaching and pastorial ministries- promises to reshape our understanding of traditional clergy leadership roles, tile us even more toward a neo-Pentecostal fervor in the way we have church, and provide us with new and creative ways of addressing problems within the community. In this remarkable book, thirteen African American women tell the heroic and heartbreaking stories of their calls and journeys to the ministry. While some of these women are well established in their ministerial services, others are only beginning. Collectively they represent a voice that needs to be heard in churches and seminaries across the country.

For more than three hundred years, black women have embodied a theology of hope, which has enabled them to overcome a history of abuse and violence. While a theology of hope has been widely discussed in twentieth century theology, it was born in slavery long before Jurgen Moltmann introduced it to America in 1967. Even womanist notions of hope have not explored the theological character of hope in abused black women's narratives. Crawford argues that hope is the theological construct that moves black women beyond endurance and survival to transformation of their personal and communal realities. This book identifies and analyzes the theological vision of hope voiced within the narratives of enslaved, emancipated, and contemporary black women and brings that vision into discussion with contemporary womanist theologies.
