About this book

Colonial Contexts and Postcolonial Theology focuses on what postcolonial theologies look like in colonial contexts, particularly in dialogue with the First Nations Peoples in Australia and the Asia-Pacific. The contributors have roots in the Asia-Pacific, but the struggles, theologies and concerns they address are shared across the seas.

Reviews

"This collection of essays presents a balanced mix of theological contributions on scripture, gender studies, ecology, inculturation, history, law, and missiology. What makes them distinctive are the perspectives from which they are written. The perspectives are one of empowerment which has transformed the formerly voiceless into strong advocates for justice, which runs throughout the work not as theory, but as clearly articulated aim." - Paula Sampson, Director, Indigenous Studies Centre, Vancouver School of Theology, Canada
