About this book

Written from an African American perspective, this work depicts the presentation of the gospel message to the first-century community of Colossae, their reception of it comparative to the presentation and reception of the same to the enslaved Africans of North America particularly in the eighteenth and the nineteenth centuries.

Reviews



The turn towards postcolonial hermeneutics has gathered apace in more recent times and this important book adds to this fine tradition. Tinsley has crafted an incisive and challenging text that brings African American experiences into a critical conversation with Colossians, giving voice to previously silenced communities that are situated behind and in front of the text. This is an impressive first and is a must read. - Anthony G. Reddie, Editor, Black Theology: An International Journal , Author, SCM Core Text: Black Theology.

For those who continue to search for insight into the meaning to the initial audiences of the various New Testament books, this work on the letter to the Colossians by Annie Tinsley is a most welcome resource. By engaging a postcolonial African perspective, she brings fresh insight into the text's meaning by hearing voices silenced through oppression: those impacted by colonization in the first century, as well as the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. - Randall J. Pannell, Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs, Regent University, US
