Summary

Beginning in the nineteenth century, native women preachers served and led nascent Protestant churches in much of Southern India. Even while allying with their missionary employers, they evolved their own mission theology and practices. This volume identifies what Telugu Biblewomen believed their mission to be and how they practiced it. It also examines the impact of Telugu culture and socio-political dynamics, such as caste, gender, and empire, on the theology and practices of the Telugu Biblewomen.
