Women and Christian Mission
Ways of Knowing and Doing Theology
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"Frances Adeney takes us on an eye-opening and inspiring tour of women's contributions to the church's mission and the theology that sustains them in it. This is a book from which women will profit greatly, but it is not only a 'women's book.' Women and men should both take the tour, and be affirmed, challenged, and surprised."
--Stephen B. Bevans, Louis J. Luzbetak, SVD Professor of Mission and Culture, Catholic Theological Union, Chicago
"Sociologist, theologian, and mission educator, Frances Adeney is one of the most creative thinkers in mission studies today. In this volume she tackles a core problem: the relationship of gender to missiology. Adeney's analysis deepens our understanding of this important issue. This book will surprise, disturb, and delight its readers. It belongs on the shelf of everyone interested in the construction of mission theology."
