A theology in tune with postcolonial theory has the potential to creatively inform and transform ecclesial practice. Focusing on the relation of theology to postcolonial theory, Postcolonial Theologies brings together a wide diversity of authors, many of them fresh and exciting theological voices, in essays that are stunningly creative and prophetically lucid. All essays are theologically constructive, not merely deconstructive or critical, in their visions for Christianity. Forming a sort of doctrinal landscape, they emerge under the themes of theological anthropology shaped by ethnicity, class, and privilege; a Christology that intersects the claims of Christ and empire; and a Cosmology that imagines a postcolonial world.

Editorial Reviews

"Postcolonial Theologies was a worthwhile 'expenditure' of my jealously guarded reading time. Within its pages one will encounter both established and emergent voices in theological studies taking on the age-old, ever-mutating but always expanding realities of Empire. This book deftly uses postcolonial theory not only to deconstruct, but (re) construct theological reflection; in addition, it not only 'applies' postcolonial theory to theology but also explores what theology may contribute to postcolonial inquiry. There are fresh and refreshing ruminations on theological anthropology, christology, and divinity, but also captivating contentions with pressing issues of our times like disability, diversity, ecology, and the global economy."
