Deliver Us from Evil : Resisting Racial and Gender Oppression

Description

Deliver Us From Evil explores the history of resistance to racial and gender oppression-from a slave woman in nineteenth-century America to a woman patient of Sigmund Freud-and traces the failed promises of the American Revolution in the oppression of subordinate groups. Poling reviews resistance by analyzing communities that understand evil as the abuse of power. Also treated are definitions of evil and debates between womanist and feminist theologians. Jesus emerges as a model for marginalized and oppressed people, as Poling calls for prophetic acts of solidarity to create new possibilities for healing and justice.
