Dancing Their Dreams: The Lakeshore Nyanja Women of the Anglican Diocese of Niassa

Front Cover
Kachere Series, 2005 - Anglican Communion - 180 pages
Dancing their Dreams is rooted in theological reflection and missionary perspectives on the lives of the Nyanja women in Niassa province, Northern Mozambique, and on the Anglican Diocese of Niassa in central and southern Mozambique and on the Zimbabwean border. As such it offers a much wider critique of the impacts of the devastation of the war - social, economic, moral, psychological and theological, of the position of women in Mozambique and of the women's situation in relation to theology elsewhere in Africa.
