In her modest, sensitive way, Pauline Webb has probably been the most influential British churchwoman in the post-war period, and certainly Methodism's most famous daughter. Challenged by early encounters with injustice in the developing world, she came to understand Christianity as a faith with the power to transform whole systems of oppression. Moreover, she believed that the ecumenical movement held the key to unlocking the 'power' of the Church, and has travelled with it throughout. Pauline Webb has set herself against writing a full-scale autobiography. But, aware that 'somebody else might get it wrong later', she has finally committed to writing these memoirs. As much as a 'history' of Pauline Webb, they are a history of the Church's efforts to cast off its Victorian straitjacket and to 'Make All Things New' in an era both of huge threat and huge opportunity.
'Pauline Webb has probably been the most influential churchwoman in the post-war period and this is her account of her remarkable life. Widely regarded as a pioneer and role model, her story illustrates how women can lead in situations previously regarded as the domain of men and how the Gospel can speak powerfully and with relevance in politics and world affairs'.
