Introducing Asian Feminist Theology // Kwok Pui-lan.


In this (awfully) short work, Kwok Pui-lan, one of the most prominent Asian feminist theologians of our time, surveys various Asian feminist theologies. Asia is probably the most ethnically, culturally, and religiously diverse continent. To introduce the various strands in less than 130 pages forces the author to place limitations on sources and depth. Nonetheless, Kwok has done a superb job, despite the egregious limitations. Therefore, Introducing Asian Feminist Theology should be seen as a launchpad to delve deeper other Asian feminists and their works. Personally, I have found her chapter on Christology the most fascinating.
