520    Beginning in the nineteenth century, native women 
       preachers served and led nascent Protestant churches in 
       much of Southern India. Even while allying with their 
       missionary employers, they evolved their own mission 
       theology and practices. This volume identifies what Telugu
       Biblewomen believed their mission to be and how they 
       practiced it. It also examines the impact of Telugu 
       culture and socio-political dynamics, such as caste, 
       gender, and empire, on the theology and practices of the 
       Telugu Biblewomen
