Westminster John Knox Press, Jan 1, 1997 - Biography & Autobiography - 192 pages

Here are the stories of twelve women--Sophia Fahs, Hulda Niebuhr, Nelle Morton, Rachel Henderlite, Iris Cully, Norma Thompson, Olivia Pearl Stokes, Sara Little, Dorothy Jean Furnish, Freda Gardner, Letty Russell, and Maria Harris--all religious educators, all who transformed the field of religious education, some long before the contemporary feminist movement. Though the women represent different times, interests, and approaches to the discipline, they all shared a commitment to creative and enthusiastic religious education.
