Reviews

"This book will indubitably become a landmark in religious studies and theology. Carvalhaes gathers a superb quality of critical reflections that unveil unexplored roles of liturgy in both the reproduction of global patterns of domination and the resistances against them. This is a must read for scholars and students interested in Postcolonialism, liturgy, religion and society, ethics, theology, and inter-religious conversations." - Santiago Slabodsky, Claremont School of Theology, USA

'This pioneering text makes a unique contribution to postcolonial study of liturgy by introducing multi-faith and multicultural perspectives.' - Kwok Pui-lan, Episcopal Divinity School, USA, and author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology

'Carvalhaes has brought together not just a collection of articles but a community of voices. The authors in this volume challenge all liturgies and rituals, carrying the seeds for a world that moves beyond tokenism to one in which diversity and the 'margins' shape the conversation and bear witness. It's exciting to engage this stimulating conversation!' - Dirk G. Lange, Luther Seminary, USA

"The essays within by turns analytic, poetic, prophetic, and constructive show the courage it takes to put into conversation two fields of inquiry that have had relatively little interaction. They experiment, they take risks, and they provoke. This book is an important contribution to an emerging conversation.' - James Farwell, Virginia Theological Seminary, USA
