Mission And Ministry V
Monica Jyotsna Melanchthon
According to the authors a concern for women's emancipation and cultural reform must involve a critical re-reading of the Scriptures. Such a re-reading calls for the adoption of an approach to the Bible that focuses on the purposes of solidarity and advocacy and transformation of the self and the community. An engagement with these issues and a relevant perspective would bring to light the dynamism inherent in biblical insights. This dynamism would certainly provide new directions for Christian mission and ministry in the Indian context.
