A White Southern Christian Debutante Wakes Up

- Simultaneously theological, spiritual, moral, political, social, autobiographical - First-person narrative of one who was at the forefront at a significant time in church - and secular - history

Carter Heyward writes, "I'm persuaded by decades of teaching in seminary and work as a priest in the church that countless women, and many men as well, are faithful "Jesus people" and yet alienated to various degrees from organized religion. Jack Spong and Barbara Brown Taylor are two of the better known voices who have spoken to these people. This book of mine will probably stand with theirs in appealing to this large and diverse group of Jesus people who have become 'post Christians, ' 'cultural Christians, ' or have simply drifted away from the church."

She Flies On, however, is not really a critique of organized religion, but rather Heyward's effort to think theologically, politically, socially, and autobiographically about the world and the church in which she has lived and worked. A Christian feminist "theologian of liberation," Episcopal priest, lesbian, Southerner, and socialist Democrat, Heyward sees the writes about the church, but more about the people - and creatures - of God going about their lives and attempting to love one another.

Audience: Theologians, those interested in Carter's historical significance, feminists, "post Christians"
