Material type: TextTextPublisher: Ann Arbor, MI : ProQuest, 2019Description: v, 154 pages ; 29 cmContent type: text Media type: unmediated Carrier type: volumeSubject(s): Psychic trauma -- Religious aspects -- Christianity | Racism -- Moral and ethical aspectsLOC classification: BV4070.L284 | 2019 G67Online resources: Dissertations & Theses @ Lancaster Theological Seminary | Digital Archive of Lancaster Theological Seminary Dissertation note: Major project (D. Min.)--Lancaster Theological Seminary, 2019. Abstract: Although Black Liberation and Womanist Theologies have unlocked a profound conversation on praxis for oppressed people, they have not included, in large measure, the guidance to be gained from an intersection with Moral Injury Theory. An argument is presented, the purpose of which is to show how Black Liberation Theology enhances Moral Injury Theory and how Moral Injury Theory provides tools for addressing the effects of racism. In so doing, the concept of moral injury strengthens Black Liberation Theology by expanding its resolve to serve within communities affected by racism and indeed with all humanity. In addition, the theology of liberation may provide support for the spiritual attempt to encourage sufferers of moral injury through transcendent concepts such as forgiveness, reconciliation, and perhaps even atonement. This project also provides pastors, chaplains, and others with the kind of understandings and motivations that will assist them in meeting the needs of parishoners who may be struggling with the despair of the hidden wounds of racism that display the symptoms of moral injury.
