This course will provide an introduction to womanist theology through a study of three decades of scholarship produced by womanist theologians in the United States. Organized systematically to address a range of topics, including biblical hermeneutics, Christology, pneumatology, soteriology, theological anthropology, theologies of embodiment, sin and suffering, evil, ecclesiology, and eschatology, the study will employ both a deconstructive and a constructive method in an effort to interpret and enhance the faith and practice of the church.
