“No matter their ethnic backgrounds, each of these women cares about changing the world through justice making. . . .These sermons reflect that human needs and concerns cross social, class, ethnic, and racial divides.” —from the Introduction by Valerie Bridgeman Davis
When Those Preachin’ Women was introduced in 1985, it proudly presented the sermons of fourteen African American women who stood as “symbols of a courageous new generation of black women ministers.” Each successive volume in the series featured greater numbers of women, from a broader variety of ministries and vocations.
Now, Those Preaching Women: A Multicultural Collection appears at the urging of women who have been encouraged in their ministries by the previous contributors. As in earlier volumes, these women reflect many church traditions and various ministry settings, and this time they also represent the rich ethnic diversity of the United States in the twenty-first century, including:
- African American
- Native American
- European American
- Puerto Rican
- South Korean
- South Vietnamese
- West Indian
Brought together by the “dean of black women preachers” herself, Rev. Dr. Ella P. Mitchell, this treasure trove includes the “unfettered, creative exchange of sacred rhetoric” by God’s women from every tribe, nation, and language group. Prepare to be inspired, moved, and challenged!
