"Edited by Musimbi R.A. Kanyoro".
Includes bibliographical references.
A collection of 25 essays offering "a thought-provoking contribution both to the Ecumenical Decade - Churches in Solidarity with Women and to the process of drawing out the implications for the churches of the Platform for Action adopted by the United Nations' fourth World Conference on Women (Beijing 1995). While this book grows out of papers originally prepared for an international consultation on women called by the Lutheran World Federation, its relevance extends beyond the Lutheran family to all Christian churches who are concerned to see how the particular gifts of women can make an even greater difference in their life and witness" -- back cover.
