About-

This book explores the challenge of being a Christian woman in Asia. Katoppo explains why Asian Christian women like herself seek the right to be different, to be the Other, rather than having to accept identities borrowed from men and other cultures.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Compassionate and Free draws heavily on both the Bible and the contemporary realities of life for women in Asia. Indonesia, the author's homeland, naturally figures prominently in her work, but so also do the other Asian countries. Beautifully illustrated with black-and-white line sketches by Vincent Liyanage, the book is as pleasing to the eye as it is challenging to Asian church convention."
