“”Sisters with Power is the first real attempt to record the opinions of women in black majority churches and reinforces the fact that their views need to be heard.”–Methodist Recorder, August 16, 2001” –
“”This book is an excellent collection of concise articles on theology…Sisters With Power is an inspiring and absorbing piece of literature. Well worth a read!” – RACE Multicultural Journal, Spring 2001” –
“”I found my understanding deepened and both my interest and sympathy exited. Sisters With Power lives up to its title. The range is impressive…The reader is left in no doubt of the powerful effect of slavery and of patriarchal domination on the lives of contemporary black women. Nor can one escape the negative values which often shape women’s position in church society. But the lasting effect is a recognition of the strength for creative good here, which the churches surely must value.”–The Expository Times, August 2001”
