Enfleshing Freedom is not an easy read but it is an important book for those who strive to broaden their understanding of what it means to be a Catholic Christian. M. Shawn Copeland does not shy away from the truth just because it will challenge many readers to look at Christ and discipleship in a different way. Some may find Copeland's writing to be too scholarly and unapproachable. I find it to be prophetic and challenging. For the reader who is open to looking at the intersection of race and faith, I highly recommend Enfleshing Freedom.

Format: Paperback
This book of practical engagement with theological anthropology from the perspective of racism especially seen from the prism of black women’s body in a unique and exemplary way contributes to Christian anthropology using what can be considered the singular most important and visible aspect of being human – the body. Bearing in mind the differences of opinions, biases and ideological machinations power has made of differences in phenotype in hierarchizing human bodies, Copeland approaches Christian anthropology with a call to solidarity in the single humanum everybody shares as human beings. Copeland does not shy away from the discomfort mention of racism causes but instead using the experiences of slavery especially the suffering of black women, she calls for reimagining of the social structure and reconceiving of the flawed enlightenment induced scientific analysis that sanctioned dehumanization and denigration of black bodies considered as ‘inferior’ to the ‘superior’ white race as well as rethinking of theological anthropology from the experience of black women whose bodies slavery rendered “objects of property, of production, of reproduction, of sexual violence.” I highly recommend Copeland's new perspective on theological anthropology.

This book is amazingly written, and a must have for all womanist/feminist scholars. I highly recommend it. I have read it twice now.
