Product Description

Learn from the wit, wisdom, and creative power of black women who preach.

Ingenuity introduces a theology and practice of preaching that emerges from the faith and wisdom of black women. Preaching has been resourced and taught from a narrow field of cultural or gendered experiences, historically. Without much support from established channels, black women are left to “figure it out” on their own, and others discern how to preach from a limiting scope.

The best preachers understand their own voices and the voices of others. They stretch and grow, and this enables them to preach more effectively. Ingenuity equips readers to negotiate tradition, life experiences, and theological conviction in the creative work that makes way for sacred speech.

With Ingenuity, Lisa Thompson offers deep insights for anyone seeking to enlarge their understanding, their language, and their sense of lived experiences, and offers practical help through “In Practice” segments for those who preach.

"Written from the deep well of the spirituality of Black women, Thompson has given us a remarkable guide for what preaching should be and must be for the times we are in. Accessible, thoughtful, probing, pastoral, prophetic—all come together in this text. A must read for anyone committed to faithful excellence in proclaiming the word." -Emilie M. Townes, Dean and E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor of Womanist Ethics and Society, Vanderbilt University Divinity School

Learn from the wit, wisdom, and creative power of black women who preach.

If you’re a preacher, at some point you’ve felt like an outsider. If you are other than a white male preacher, that feeling is especially intense. Until now, black women pastors have been left to “figure it out” with very little help from established academic sources. Ingenuity helps fill that gap. Author Lisa L. Thompson uses real sermons to illustrate that the best preachers are not just good at mimicking their (predominately white/male) teachers; they bring together their unique blend of language, voice, and shared experience to craft the most effective messages. Although written with black women pastors in mind, all students and preachers will find this book to be a valuable resource.
