A new generation of feminist theologians from Africa, Asia, Oceania, and Latin America is responding to their changing world with critical theological insights and social analyses. This new reader, including indigenous voices, comprises eighteen reflections by women theologians who face daily poverty, violence, civil strife, war, and cultural alienation, yet who find abundant hope through their faith.

Kwok Pui-Ian, from Hong Kong, is the William F. Cole Professor of Christian Theology and Spirituality at the Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge. She has published extensively on Asian feminist theology, biblical interpretation, and postcolonial theology. Writing in both Chinese and English, she is the author of Discovering the Bible in the Non-Biblical World (Orbis) and the editor of Women and Christianity, a four-volume reference work (Routledge).

"A groundbreaking and rich anthology. This .book is an excellent introduction of these variegated voices from around the world...I highly recommend it in the hope that it will become a must read in many...theology and women's studies courses."—Elisabeth Schnssler Fiorenza

"A comprehensive and lucid analysis of the exciting and contentious theological development of Third World women …has all the ingredients for becoming an instant classic."—R.S. Sugirtharajah

"Hope Abundant is a worthy successor to With Passion and Compassion: Third World Women Doing Theology, It charts ably how Third World feminist and indigenous women's theology has developed over the last two decades, demonstrating its breadth in pointing to emerging themes and its depth in critical analysis...This book is a go-to resource."—Robert Schreiter

"Provides a much needed volume of essays written by global women influenced by feminist, post-colonial, and indigenous theological perspectives. What they write about scripture, Christology and the body, sexuality, and spirituality is must reading for all in theological studies."—Linda E. Thomas
