  1970년 이화여자대학교를 재정적 · 문화적으로 후원하기 위해 설립된 이화국제재단의 40년 역사를 정리한 책이다. 이화국제재단은 국제 연대를 통해 이화여대를 더욱 발전시키고자 했던 김활란 박사의 뜻을 받들어 이화 동창생들과 이화의 성장을 돕고자 하는 미국인들,  감리교 지도자들이 모여 미국 내에 설립한 비영리 기관이다. 이 책은 이화국제재단의 설립 배경과 목적을 비롯해 각종 기금 조성, 장학금 및 연구비 지원, 국제 교류 프로그램 후원 등 학교의 발전을 위해 다양하게 전개해온 활동 기록을 담고 있다.
  『River of Faith(믿음의 강)』는 단지 이화국제재단의 역사만을 기록한 책이 아니다. 이 책은 한국과 북미의 기독교인들이 제대로 된 교육을 받을 기회조차 없었던 19세기 한국 여성들의 교육을 위해 어떻게 힘을 모았으며, 이화를 발전시키기 위해 어떠한 노력을 기울였는지 보여주고 있다. ‘River of Faith’라는 제목은 2천 년 전 시작된 기독교 정신이 19세기 북미 감리교 여성 신자들의 ‘여성을 위한 여성의 사역’ 선교운동을 통해 강줄기처럼 이화여대로 흘러 이어지고 있음을 은유적으로 표현한 것이다. 또한 작은 물방울과 같았던 이화여대가 동서의 많은 이화 친구들의 도움으로 큰 강을 이루게 된 성장의 역사를 비유한 것이기도 하다. 이 책을 통해 단 한 명의 학생에서 시작해 오늘날 세계 최대의 여자대학으로, ‘도움을 받던 대학에서 도움을 주는’ 대학으로 성장한 이화여자대학교의 발전상도 아울러 확인할 수 있을 것이다.  

  River of Faith is an inspiring case study revealing how the internationally recognized Ewha Womans University emerged as Christians, mostly women, in Korea and North America partnered over generations to uplift the status of women in society through education. This historical perspective of the International Foundation for Ewha Womans University (IFEWU) reveals the importance of long-term institution building and global-scale education movements. 
  River of Faith is a metaphor for a stream of compassion that flows to and through Ewha Womans University. Integral to the River of Faith story was the broad-based "Woman's Work for Woman" movement by Methodist women in North America begun in the late 19th century that fueled the creation of Ewha. Equally significant is Ewha's recent establishment and support of programs that advance its status "from the receiving university to a giving university" by opening its gates to underserved women students from developing countries.
  The IFEWU was established in 1970 to assure the continuation of the North American commitment to assist Ewha in fulfilling Dr. Helen Kim's dreams of building a premier institution and promoting internationalism in which all people, including women and regardless of national boundaries, fully participate. Dr. Kim was Ewha's first Korean president.
  This book centers on the creation and evolution of IFEWU over a 40-year period as it assisted Ewha Womans University through financial support for major buildings including the construction and equipping of the Centennial Library and Mokdong Hospital, the renovation of Welch-Ryang Auditorium, and the ongoing maintenance of Pfeiffer Hall. Additionally, IFEWU provided support for faculty enhancement and the Helen Kim International Lectureship. In recent decades, it has provided important assistance through scholarships for Ewha students through endowments set up by Ewha alumna, Ewha alumna chapters, and Ewha friends. 
  IFEWU continued and expanded on the benevolence of earlier organizations and individuals in North America to promote the education of girls and women in Korea.  Over turbulent times, warm working and personal relationships formed as Ewha matured into an outstanding educational institution that seeks and builds international partnerships. IFEWU stands ready to be of service to Ewha in these efforts, as it learned from Dr. Helen Kim the valuable lesson of the good that happened as she crossed national boundaries to "make friends for Ewha."
