Crossing and Experimentation

Crossing and Experimentation

Pauli Murray’s Activism as Christian Practice and Lived Theology

(p.102) 6 Crossing and Experimentation
Lived Theology

Sarah Azaransky

Oxford University Press

Azaransky analyzes the political activism of lawyer, author, and advocate for civil rights and women’s rights Pauli Murray. Azaransky mines her sermons, journals, lectures, published writings, and ecclesial leadership as sources of, and indeed model examples of, deep, disciplined, engaged reflection on God and God’s relation to the world. Azaransky demonstrates how lived theology’s singular commitments prompt a series of pressing theological, historiographical, and methodological questions. These include, what counts as theological reflection? Can activism and organizing for social justice be appropriated as theological material? And what kind of a hermeneutic do we need to accurately read practices as theological texts?

Keywords:   lived theology, Pauli Murray, theological reflection, activism, organizing, hermeneutics, race, gender, sexuality
