"A collection of essays and stories documenting the lived theology and spirituality we need to hear in order to lean into a more freeing, loving, and liberating faith-from the hosts of the beloved Truth's Table podcast. Once upon a time, an activist, a theologian, and a psychologist walked into a group chat. Everything was laid out on the table: Dating. Politics. The Black church. Pop culture. Soon, other Black women began pulling up chairs to gather round. And so, the Truth's Table podcast was born. In their literary debut, co-hosts Christina Edmondson, Michelle Higgins, and Ekemini Uwan offer stories by Black women and for Black women examining theology, politics, race, culture, and gender matters through a Christian lens. For anyone seeking to explore the spiritual dimensions of hot-button issues within the church, or anyone thirsty to deepen their faith, Truth's Table provides exactly the survival guide we need, including: Michelle Higgins's unforgettable treatise revealing the way "racial reconciliation" is a spiritually bankrupt, empty promise that can often drain us of the ability to do real justice work Ekemini Uwan's exploration of Blackness as the image of God in the past, present, and future Christina Edmondson's reimagination of what a more just and liberating form of church discipline might look like-one that acknowledges and speaks to the trauma in the room These essays deliver a compelling theological re-education and pair the spiritual formation and political education necessary for Black women of faith"-- Provided by publisher.
