With Courage and Compassion celebrates the contributions of women to nations, societies, churches, and the ecumenical movement. While recounting the progressive stance the World Council of Churches has taken in recognizing the leadership and theological gifts of women, this book is honest about the many forms of exclusion and even violence against women in societies in the church and the ecumenical movement that persist. It calls for a transformation of unjust attitudes and systems.
