Christian Response to Female Circumcision




Although those advocating for women issues have discussed eradication of female circumcision, not much has been said either on the biblical response or viable substitutes to replace this undying cultural tradition. The values and perspectives that surround this ritual have been the most powerful driving force.

This book discusses the persistence of Female Circumcision, experiences and attitudes of the people towards the ritual and biblical evaluation of the ritual. It also proposes a functional substitute to provide educational void which would otherwise be created.
