About-

Mercy Amba Oduyoye, from Ghana, founded the Circle of Concerned African Women Theologians and is the first African woman from south of the Sahara to have served as deputy general secretary of the World Council of Churches. The essays in this volume describe the key contributions she has made to African theology in our time, and then apply her insights to issues of scripture, health and poverty, and women as peacemakers.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A significant and critically important work [which] clearly reveals why Oduyoye is seen as the mother of an African women's theology which is communal, ecumenical, culturally grounded, and encompasses both feminist and womanist thought while at the same time remaining authentically African."
--Diana L. Hayes, Georgetown University
