Christology is especially problematic for feminists. Because Jesus was undeniably male and because the Christian church claims him as the unique God-bearer, feminist christology confronts the dual tasks of explaining the significance of a male God-bearer for women and creating a christological model adequate to feminist experience. Jacquelyn Grant rehearses the development and challenges of feminist christology and argues that, because it has reflected the experience of White women predominantly, it fails to speak to the concerns of non-white and non-western women. In response to this failure, Grant proposes a womanist theology and christology that emerge from and are adequate to the reality of contemporary Black women.

In Carter's words: I’m persuaded by decades of teaching in seminary and work as a priest in the church that countless women, and many men as well, are faithful “Jesus people” and yet alienated to various degrees from organized religion. Jack Spong and Barbara Brown Taylor are two of the better known voices who have spoken to these people. This book of mine will probably stand with theirs in appealing to this large and diverse group of Jesus people who have become “post Christians,” “cultural Christians,” or have simply drifted away from the church. “She Flies On,” however is not really a critique of organized religion, but rather an effort to think theologically, politically, socially, and autobiographically about the world and the church into which I was born 70 years ago and have lived and worked as a Christian feminist theologian of liberation, who is also an Episcopal priest, a lesbian, a Southerner, and a socialist Democrat. So, while the book does in fact critique the church – especially its foundational doctrine of the Trinity – its rationale is less about the church and more about the people – and creatures – of God going about our lives on planet earth, trying to love one another in the 21st century C.E.

This study articulates the distinctive moral character of the Afro-American women's community. Beginning with a reconstructive history of the Afro-American woman's situation in America, the work next traces the emergence of the Black woman's literary tradition and explains its importance in expressing the moral wisdom of Black women. The life and work of Zora Neale Hurston is examined in detail for her unique contributions to the moral tradition of the Afro-American woman. A final chapter initiates a promising exchange between the works of Hurston and those of Howard Thurman and Martin Luther King, Jr. A pioneering and multi-dimensional work, 'Black Womanist Ethics' is at once a study in ethics, gender, and race.
