In her new book, Monica A. Coleman articulates the African American expression of "making a way out of no way" for today's context of globalization, religious pluralism, and sexual diversity. Drawing on womanist religious scholarship and process thought, Coleman describes the symbiotic relationship among God, the ancestors, and humanity that helps to change the world into the just society it ought to be. Making a Way Out of No Way shows us a way of living for justice with God and proposes a communal theology that presents a dynamic way forward for black churches, African traditional religions and grassroots organizations.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Provoking Possibilities  May 20, 2010
Making A Way Out of No Way is a versatile book that provides both a fresh look at feminist and womanist theology and new horizons for process thought, combining provocation with accessibility. I used this book in a college Christology class to stretch students' perspectives about what salvation can mean and how Christian theology can be in dialogue with other religions. Especially interesting are the two chapters which provide primers on womanist theology and African diaspora religion. Useful for constructive Christian theology are the focus on this-worldly salvation and salvific communities, and a Whiteheadian contruction of ancestor immortality that brings new insight to the Holy Spirit.
My open-minded students loved it, and all received new insight into Christian theological possibilities and the importance of religious community.
 
Making a Way out of no way  May 12, 2010
Making a Way out of No way was an excellent introduction into a black postmodern womanist appropriation of process theology.

While I myself do not prefer to use process categories and Whiteheadian metaphysics, I sympathize with Coleman's reconstruction of the Christian faith for the 21st century.

Theologically speaking, I have a few disagreements with Coleman since I am not a process theologian, but as a relational theologian working within the African American religious tradition, I would highly reocommend this work.
 
A Genuine Gem  Mar 22, 2010
Making A Way Out of No Way is truly a remarkable work. The author unlocks the traditional Christian mindset and opens scholarly ideas relating to the social-emotional and political plight of Afro-American women in connection to their religious and spiritual outlook. This is an extraordinary view of how Christ and salvation is interconnected to what I call the Mother Principle but the author refers to as Womanist Theology. The author magnificently demonstrates the connection between the Afro-American Womanist Theology, aspects of salvation, and African Indigenous Spirituality. Making a Way Out of No Way: A Womanist Theology is a must read for women in seminary training. This is a timely book for my spiritual journey and I am very thankful for this brilliant contribution to the spirituality and theology fields. I am looking forward to future works of author, Monica A. Coleman.
 
Opening New Doors  Mar 15, 2010
This book is like a breath of fresh air. I have been a womanist all my life. My mother was a womanist. I have also studied theology. But, Monica A. Coleman actually has me very excited about learning all I can about womanist theology. This book is extremely insightful and inspirational. It is easy to read, entertaining and educational. The author is brilliant. I appreciate the introduction to my new path in life - to be a womanist theology scholar.
