The achievement of our humanity comes about only through immersion in concrete, visceral, embodied relational experience; yet for many human beings that achievement is stamped by the struggle against oppression in history, society, and religion.

In this incisive and important work, distinguished theologian M. Shawn Copeland demonstrates with rare insight and conviction how black women's historical experience and oppression cast a completely different light on our theological ideas about being human. Copeland argues that race, embodiment, and relations of power reframe not only theological anthropology but also our notions of discipleship, church, Eucharist, and Christ. Enfleshing Freedom is a work of deep moral seriousness, rigorous speculative skill, and sharp theological reasoning. This new edition incorporates recent theological, philosophical, historical, political, and sociological scholarship; engages with current social movements like #BlackLivesMatter and #MeToo; and presents a new chapter on the body.
