In an attempt to bring the YWCA and the Christian church into a fuller dialogue, Hwain Chang Lee has written a book which traces their respective historical evolutions and changing understanding of their missions. She concludes that the YWCA, while ministering to Christian women in a unique manner, should recognize and affirm their dependence upon the church. Similarly, she proposes that the church, as a safe-guard of 'sacred memories,' should recognize its dependence upon non-orthodox mission groups. The author intertwines her own life story with the history of these groups, as a woman deeply affected by both communities.
