When Momma Speaks: The Bible and Motherhood from A Womanist Perspective

Publisher's Description

Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder provides an engaging womanist reading of mother characters in the Old and New Testaments. After providing a brief history of womanist biblical interpretation, she shows how the stories of several biblical mothers Hagar, Rizpah, Bathsheba, Mary, the Canaanite woman, and Zebedee’s wife can be powerful sources for critical reflection, identification, and empowerment. Crowder also explores historical understandings of motherhood in the African American community and how these help to inform present-day perspectives. She includes questions for discussion with each chapter.

Listen to Dr. Stephanie Buckhanon Crowder on CBE’s Mutuality Matters podcast as she talks about her book, identity, womanism, and a few of the mothers from the Old Testament.

Three women smiling at the camera, each is holding a present.
