Through a complex and fascinating array of African American women's voices, Marla Frederick speaks to the power of religious consciousness for social change today."--Evelyn Brooks Higginbotham, Professor of History and Afro-American Studies, Harvard University

Between Sundays may just reshape the entire field, obliging scholars and educated readers to consider African American religion and gender in a new, fantastic light."--R. Marie Griffith, Princeton University, author of "God's Daughters: Evangelical Women and the Power of Submission
