The Gospel of John recounts the story of an encounter between Jesus and a Samaritan woman at the well. After their conversation, she goes out to tell her neighbors about the mysterious stranger, and many of them believed ‘on the strength of her witness.’ These essays, drawn from around the world, reveal the many ways that women have reflected on and borne witness to the person, teaching, and praxis of Jesus Christ in light of their own varied contexts. These contexts include their struggles for life amidst wrenching poverty, racism, and violence, their experience of being female in male-dominated structures in the church and society, and their commitment to promote justice in view of the human dignity of women, all done in tandem with their faith relationship with the living God.
