Enfleshing Freedom: Body, Race, and Being

Author: M. Shawn Copeland

This deeply important work of theology examines what exactly it means to be human. As a Black feminist, M. Shawn Copeland explores how her own community’s experience can inform our theology about humanity. Her work especially focuses on the contemporary challenges of race, the vulnerability of the human body, and oppression. From this perspective, she explores classical theological themes such as the church, Christ, the Eucharist, and humanity. This work is personally challenging in all the best sort of ways. It pushes us to be better and to think more clearly about what it means to be human.
