Realising the urgency to re-examine both new developments and old challenges in the light of the 21st century, thirteen authors from Asia, the UK and Africa have made an effort to look into the lives of women and groups who are struggling to create a space for themselves in their living context. This compilation of theological essays in this book is rooted in the lived reality of Asia and Asians. The authors range from scholars to grassroots, theologians, whose method of doing theology is contextual. It takes off from the experience and struggles of women, the marginalized and the poor, and makes for easy reading even for Catholics unfamiliar with theological jargon. Thus the authors continue to uphold the tradition of bringing to life the vision and mission of Ecclesia of Women in Asia (EWA) as an association of Catholic women doing theology in Asia, that encourages and assists women in engaging in theologizing that is inculturated and contextualized in Asian realities.
