Show Summary Details


This chapter discusses Murray's transition in the 1970s and 1980s from a career focused on the law to one devoted primarily to what she called “moral and spiritual problems.” It offers a systematic reading of the themes of salvation, suffering, and the coming kingdom that animated Murray's sermons and places her theological program in conversation with contemporary womanist and black feminist scholars.
