Topics include prophetic eschatology; the problems of the urban poor; childlessness in African marriages; the Jesus movement as a basileia movement; the interplay of racism, sexism and classism in the murder trial of a black woman; and the meaning of the Spirit in the Fourth Gospel. One of the first women to be ordained in the United Presbyterian Church, Russell served for many years in the East Harlem Protestant Parish, where she focused her ministry on equipping her congregation of mostly black and Hispanic people to claim their voices as leaders in the parish and the community. Years before the approach was recognized in the larger church, Russell developed Bible studies that encouraged people of color to explore ways in which the Bible gives them voice and liberation.
