“It is still imperative to provide a space for the explicit hearing of women’s voices. This volume does exactly that. As we move further into the new millennium it gathers the myriad rich and diverse voices of Anglican women in Aotearoa New Zealand challenging themselves and their church to a new fidelity.”
