The late Katie Geneva Cannon was the founder of womanist ethics. Her work continues to generate new explorations of womanist moral thought. In this volume, leading womanist ethicists and theologians come together to continue Cannon’s work in four critical areas: justice, leadership, embodied ethics, and sacred texts. The goal is to continue Cannon’s pursuit of a world of inclusivity and hope, while realistically analyzing the discrimination, disenfranchisement, and systemic hatred that stand as obstacles to the world.
Contributors include Emilie Townes, Shawn Copeland, Eboni Marshall Turman, Angela Sims, Paula Parker, Nikia Robert, Alison Gise Johnson, Vanessa Monroe, Faith B. Harris, Stacey Floyd-Thomas, Melanie Jones, Renita Weems.
David T. Lamb
The God of the Bible is emotional. Many Christians don’t want to associate emotions with God. Emotions feel irrational, and the idea of God experiencing hate, anger, and jealousy can be confusing and problematic. And yet the Bible is full of stories where God expresses deep emotion. Christians are often left wondering how to reconcile the tension of an all-powerful God expressing seemingly uncontrollable feelings. If God is hateful and angry at humanity, is he a God worth believing in?
In The Emotions of God, biblical scholar David Lamb examines seven divine emotions―hate, anger, jealousy, sorrow, joy, compassion, and love―and argues that it is not only good that God is emotional but also that we as his image-bearers can express emotions in such a way that reflects his goodness to the world. With discussion questions and suggestions for application, Lamb challenges his readers to journey with him into a rich study of the stories surrounding God’s emotions so that we might better know God and reflect the beauty of emotion to the world.
