Truth's Table by Christina Edmondson
The beloved Truth's Table podcast hosts deliver all-new essays and stories of the lived theology and spirituality we need to hear in order to lean into a more freeing, loving, and liberating faith.
In their debut book, co-hosts Ekemini Uwan, Christina Edmondson, and Michelle Higgins offer stories by Black women and for Black women exploring theology, politics, race, culture, and gender issues through a Christian lens. For anyone seeking to see the spiritual dimensions of the hot-button issues within the church today, or anyone thirsty to deepen their faith, Truth’s Table provides exactly the survival guide we need today.
This collection of essays delves into such never-before-shared stories and insights as:
• 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
Drawing from the authors' expertise and experience in theology, activism, being Black women in the American church, and much more, each essay is rooted in both Scripture and each co-host’s story.
These pages deliver a compelling theological re-education, as the authors tenderly chronicle the sacredness in Black women's spirituality. Truth's Table pairs the spiritual formation and political education necessary for Black women of faith.
