Making a Way Out of No Way
describes the symbiotic relationship between God and humanity that helps to change the world into the just society it is intended to be.
Looking at the experience of three communities, Coleman describes a communal theology that is applicable to Christian churches, African Americans, and grassroots organizations.
In her new book, Monica A. Coleman articulates the African American expression of "making a way out of no way" for today's context of globalization, religious pluralism, and sexual diversity. Drawing on womanist religious scholarship and process thought, Coleman describes the symbiotic relationship among God, the ancestors, and humanity that helps to change the world into the just society it ought to be. Making a Way Out of No Way shows us a way of living for justice with God and proposes a communal theology that presents a dynamic way forward for black churches, African traditional religions and grassroots organizations.
Dr. Monica A. Coleman is Assistant Professor of Systematic Theology at Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago. Her work on church responses to sexual violence resulted in The Dinah Project: A Handbook for Congregational Response to Sexual Violence. The African American Pulpit named Coleman one of the "Top 20 to Watch---The New Generation of Leading Clergy: Preachers under 40."
