About-

Considering the lack of resources that exists in the study of women's preaching, Kim makes a very significant contribution to the development of homiletics, as it joins together the history of women preachers with theological reflection from other women preachers as well as herself. It is the author's hope that this book will provide a broader and deeper basis for the theology of preaching as well as practical ways in which preachers can improve their own preaching by looking at a woman's perspective.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Kim's ground-breaking book is the first comprehensive narrative of women preachers from the Second Testament to the Second Millennium. Through Kim's eyes, we see women as a constant and forceful (if often subversive) presence in Christian preaching. After focusing on the medieval period, the Reformation, and the early twentieth century, the author brings her autobiography close to the surface as she leads us to consider women and the politics of God in the colonial and post-colonial eras, with a special focus on Asia. The book climaxes with a call to envision preaching as partnership with God that facilitates partnership in the church and world in the service of liberation."
-Ronald J. Allen, Nettie Sweeney and Hugh Th. Miller Professor of Preaching and New Testament, Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis, Indiana

"Kim's exciting exploration of the history of women preachers illuminates the remarkable perseverance of God and the women who partner with God to bring words of peace and transformation to the world. Those churches that continue to deny women's preaching do more than simply perpetuate an inequality. They also quench the Spirit who yearns to transform us into co-workers in the liberative work of God."
-Cliff Guthrie, Associate Professor of Homiletics and Pastoral Studies,
Bangor Theological Seminary, Bangor, Maine
