White Women's Christ and Black Women's Jesus
Feminist Christology and Womanist ResponseBook - 1989
Christology is especially problematic for feminists. Because Jesus was undeniably male and because the Christian church claims him as the unique God-bearer, feminist christology confronts the dual tasks of explaining the significance of a male God-bearer for women and creating a christologicalmodel adequate to feminist experience. Jacquelyn Grant rehearses the development and challenges of feminist christology and argues that, because it has reflected the experience of White women predominantly, it fails to speak to the concerns of non-white and non-western women. In response to thisfailure, Grant proposes a womanist theology and christology that emerge from and are adequate to the reality of contemporary Black women.
