About-

The phenomenon of Asian women doing theology is recent. Christian women in Asia increasingly insist that unless their distinctive voices as Asians and as women are heard, the emerging theologies cannot be liberating, relevant, or complete.

Bringing together writings of women from the Philippines, India, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Korea, and Singapore, We Dare to Dream first reworks some basic theological themes of Christology, ecclesiology, and the Holy Spirit from an Asian feminist perspective. Part II explores the realities of the Asian context through issues of peace, politics, sexuality, and culture. Part Ill presents and explicates what doing theology as Asian women means.

These writings are vital to theology throughout the world today. Not only do their authors take their own history and context seriously, but they relate their experience to the experience of women throughout the world, forging common bonds and venturing toward a world of justice and reciprocity. As the editors state, "Unless our thoughts as women are known and our voices heard, the work toward rearticulating Christian theology in Asia will remain truncated. God's face will be only half seen and God's voice only half heard."

Endorsements & Reviews-

"One of the most important developments in feminist theology is its increasing globalization by Third World women. We Dare to Dream is an exciting example of this contextualization of feminist thought by Asian Christian women."
--Rosemary Radford Ruether

"Two pioneering women in the development of Asian women's theology have collaborated to bring us a much-needed collection on how Asian women do theology in their own contexts."
--Letty M. Russell
