African Saints, African Stories: 40 Holy Men and Women, by Camille Lewis Brown

This celebration of Africa’s best-known woman theologian explores issues of greatest importance for African women, and of interest to women everywhere. The book begins by first describing the particular contributions Mercy Oduyoye, first woman to serve as Deputy General of the World Council of Churches, has made to African theology. The second part deals with issues of women’s health and scripture. Part IV deals with health issues, particularly HIV/AIDS, and women as peace-makers. In Part V, the only essay by a male theologian, examines women’s theology in Africa.
