How should a woman read Paul's Letters in the light of the experience of women theologians and other women of the Third World? Some who have tried Paul have been put off by his apparent dogmatism and patriarchy. The same persons may know little about Third World women theologians. A dialectic makes Paul contemporary and gives voice to women who are speaking prophetically for a new century.
