In God in Her Midst crafts a womanist theology and praxis of preaching to the population most overlooked in our pews: wounded women - those wounded by virtue of their gender and most particularly black women who are also wounded by virtue of their race. She offers a theological paradigm to help preachers understand their responsibility to preach liberation and empowerment to the marginalized. Flake offers examples from her own ministry, provides strategies for redeeming Scripture from traditional insensitivity, and direction on how to bring good news that brings healing instead of hurt. Included are sample sermons that explore the lives of misunderstood women from the Bible.
