Traditionally the Black church tends to teach more about religion than spirituality and is virtually silent regarding sexuality. Who Told You That You Were Naked? focuses on how this tradition adversely affects the single, heterosexual Protestant Black woman’s understanding of herself as a sexual being.
Using the qualitative research method of phenomenology, this research explores how Black women’s experiences and other sources for theological ethics can inform their desire to reconcile sexual and spiritual goodness. Who Told You That You Were Naked? reveals that the difficulty in this reconciliation has roots in the larger issues of church-condoned gender hierarchy, Christianity’s hierarchal dualism, and American (USA) race-based oppression and injustice.
Inside these pages women will find relevant responses to their cry that the church is absent — or impotent — in helping us to navigate the everyday issues regarding love, sex, and romantic relationships. We rewind the text to (re)consider what the Bible actually says about non-marital sex, masturbation, and the submission of women to men. Who Told You That You Were Naked? also provides creative ways to (re)configure our own lives in light of these discoveries — with meditation, exercises, and small-group study.

for the past year, i’ve felt her beckon me softly. sometimes she’s louder than the chaos around me – her silence booms across the sky in a sunrise painting colors through blackness. Sometimes she’s so quiet i can barely hear her.
this is for the girls who feel damaged and used and forgotten. it’s a manifesto, in the middle of brokenness, for those who feel like they’ll never measure up against standards set for them.this book does not require perfection but messiness, and i’m in no better place. are you?
