An End to This Strife: The Politics of Gender in African American Churches

Synopsis

"In this call to African American churches, Demetrius Williams points to the next stage in their historic march to freedom: overcoming sexism in the church." "Williams demonstrates how the Bible - and especially the liberating message and ministry of Jesus, which broke through the taboos and social barriers of his day - have been powerfully exerted by black churches to confront society's racism and class injustice. Now, he argues, that ancient vision and proud legacy must be employed again to address the inequities of women in the Christian churches themselves." "A model for how biblical studies can illuminate and inform the contemporary scene, Williams's work will help all Christian churches to renew themselves in light of the biblical message and to reaffirm the equality of all people before God."
