A comprehensive survey of care of women, by women, from a religious standpoint results from the collaboration of nineteen leading women in the field of pastoral care. Subjects include the role of women in pastoral theology and pastoral care, care of African American women, and of women entering ministry. The book treats anger, aggression, lesbian identities, loss of mothers, eating disorders, hysterectomy, mastectomy, rape, and older women's issues. The volume concludes with women's spiritual care, community, self-sacrifice, and self-denial.
