Womanist approaches to the study of religion and society have contributed much to our understanding of Black religious life, activism, and women's liberation. Deeper Shades of Purple explores the achievements of this movement over the past two decades and evaluates some of the leading voices and different perspectives within this burgeoning field.
Deeper Shades of Purple brings together a who's who of scholars in the study of Black women and religion who view their scholarship through a womanist critical lens. The contributors revisit Alice Walker's definition of womanism for its viability for the approaches to discourses in religion of Black women scholars. Whereas Walker has defined what it means to be womanist, these contributors define what it means to practice womanism, and illuminate how womanism has been used as a vantage point for the theoretical orientations and methodological approaches of Black women scholar-activists.

Review:

"A must-have collection for readers who want to see womanist theology in all of its rich purple hues." (WATERwheel)

"Stacey M. Floyd-Thomas is to be commended for bringing together such a powerful group of religious scholars who practice, define, and critique womanist theoretical discourse." (Journal of African American History)

"Drawing on a wealth of womanist criticism that rekindles Walkers Womanism, this valuable collection of essays brings together a wide range of womanists and womanist perspectives from different sectors, providing readers with an excellent list of references on the theme of Womanism and womanist activities." (Jaehwan Han African American Review)

"An important collection of the leading scholars in Womanist religion, ethics and theology. A must read!" (James H. Cone,Union Theological Seminary)

"A stunningly original work that carries & womanist and & womanism to a new level of thinking. . . . It not only provides multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to the womanist idea but charts path-breaking directions for religious thought, ethics, and cultural analysis." (Cheryl Townsend Gilkes,author of If It Wasn't for the Women: Black Womens Experience and Womanist Culture in Church and Community)

"An important and fine collection. . . The volume is marked by its inclusiveness of ideas and not just from the perspectives of black women" (Christianity and Literature)
