Mining the Motherlode | Methods in Womanist Ethics (Floyd-Thomas)
"Floyd-Thomas gives us a compelling roadmap for understanding how and why womanist Christian ethics is neither fad nor fancy ... and calls Christian ethics to higher moral ground."
—Emilie M. Townes, Andrew W. Mellow Professor of African American Religion and Theology, Yale Divinity School
"The strength of what Floyd-Thomas has done is in the layered framework she develops to glean and systematize both the methodological structure and moral content in work of black women religious scholars."
—Rosetta E. Ross, chair and associate professor of philosophy and religious studies, Spelman College
"Insisting that womanist ethics is 'an essential [rather than] oppositional discourse,' Floyd-Thomas makes this subject accessible to any woman or man of good will who is committed to justice-making in church, academy, and society."
—M. Shawn Copeland, Boston College
"[Mining the Motherlode] should still be considered an imperative tool for any ethicist, theologian, historian, or socio-cultural anthropologist who wishes to be as inclusive as possible."
With foreword by Katie G. Cannon.
