"Edited by John S. Pobee and Barbel von Wartenberg-Potter".
Includes bibliographical references.
This book "is a third-world contribution to women's theology. The reflections and essays included in the book are all by women, women from Africa, Asia and Latin America. As they read the Bible and look at their role in church and society with new eyes, they gain new insights, experience a new freedom and come to a new commitment. Their contributions are `part of an ongoing dialogue between women in the ecumenical movement about their responsibility to further the ecumenical debate and to renew their own churches'." -- back cover.
