Synopsis: Constructed as a collective story of African women doing "communal theology", this book begins with tales of a child marriage and an unfaithful husband, told with the aid of biblical texts. Kanyoro explains and analyzes the cultural resources, the experiences and the practices of African women, and the role of cultural hermeneutics in reading the Bible. At the centre of the book stands an African woman's reading of the book of Ruth, and the concluding chapters analyze the cultural hermeneutics and address the issue of the accountability of the Church, its women's organizations, of women in Africa and of African women theologians. A blend of story and practice, theory and application, this book shows the vitality of bible reading among African women and the need for a feminist cultural hermeneutics.
