Sisters in the Wilderness: The Challenge of Womanist God-Talk
This landmark work in emerging African American "womanist" thought uses the image of Hagar--mother of Ishmael, cast into the wilderness by Abraham and Sarah but protected by God--as a prototype for African American women. Williams sees in the story of Hagar--an African woman, surrogate mother, homeless, exiled--an image of survival and defiance that is appropriate to African American women today. Index.

I'm using Williams in my thesis work right now - she is really inextricable from the study of womanism and faith. Big fan! Read full review
