Item description for Postcolonial Theologies: Divinity and Empire by Catherine Keller, Michael Nausner & Mayra Rivera...
Overview 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. Essays and contributors include: * Introduction: Alien/nation, Liberation, and the Postcolonial Underground * Complacencies and Cul-de-sacs: Christian Theologies and Colonialism, R.S. Sugirtharajah * Spirit and Liberation: Achieving Postcolonial Theology in the United States, Mark Lewis Taylor * Who Is Americana/o? Theological Anthropology, Postcoloniality, and the Spanish-Speaking Americas, Michelle Gonzalez * Monstrosities, Miracles, and Mission: Religion and the Politics of Disablement, Sharon Betcher * Who/What Is Asian? A Postcolonial Theological Reading of Orientalism and Neo-orientalism, Nam-Soon Kang * Homeland as Borderland: On the Territories of Christian Subjectivity, Michael Nausner * Mark and Empire: Zealot and Postcolonial Readings, Stephen D. Moore * The Transgressive Power of Jeong: A Postcolonial Hybridization of Christology, Wonhee Joh * Divine Commerce: Christology for Times of Neo-colonial Empire, Marion Grau * God at the Crossroads: A Postcolonial Reading of Sophia, Mayra Rivera * Liberating God-Talk: Postcolonialism and the Challenge of the Margins, Joerg Rieger * The Love of Postcolonialism: Theology in the Interstices of Empire, Catherine Keller --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
