"A book for black women who want freedom." -- Mariam Williams * Women's Review of Books *
"Jezebel Unhinged is an insightful text that not only bridges the gap between Black feminist studies, Black pop culture studies, and womanist thought in religion, but also brings fresh and innovative analyses to longstanding discourses about black womanhood." -- Ahmad Greene-Hayes * Reading Religion *
"Lomax has written a thoughtful, passionate piece, one deeply concerned about the well-being of black women and girls and, by extension, the well-being of a larger social fabric." -- Nan Kathy Lin * Studies in Religion *
"Jezebel Unhinged is an exciting and provocative scholarly work. ... For those interested in a thorough and systematic study of black women and girls and their relationship with the Black Church and black popular culture, this book is one that must be read." -- Angela M. Nelson * Asian Journal of Social Science *
"A passionate, closely argued, energetically written and illuminating text...." -- John Clammer * Ethnic and Racial Studies *
"The arrow of Dr. Lomax's words bullseyed into my soul.... Lomax brilliantly argues for critical black feminist religious engagement with how Black womanhood and girlhood are constructed and disseminated in connection with Black religion and Black popular culture. She focuses on the Black Church as a physical and psychic site of particular interest because it holds messy grey spaces outside of the social binaries we've been conditioned to accept." -- B. J. McDaniel * The Lion and the Unicorn *
