The Contributions of British Female Missionaries and Japanese Bible Women to the Ministry of the Japan Evangelistic Band in the Early 20th Century

Transformation: An International Journal of Holistic Mission Studies January 2018 35: 44-58

Female missionaries, however, were often engaged in bringing social transformation. Even though women were the major workforce in overseas mission, leadership was always in male hands. This article discusses how even though women in the Japan Evangelistic Band were not in leadership positions, their initiative in social engagement enabled the Mission to participate in spiritual as well as social transformation, and raise a generation of Japanese female leadership.

If Christian theology is to address these issues, we must explore further the meaning of the key concepts Jubilee, han, and shared identity.
