Cutting Edge Post Colonial Theology Jul 21, 2007
Musa Dube is a brilliant scholar who draws the reader into a fresh prespective on the Roman Imperial environment in which the New Testament was written. It illustrates, by examining specific Scriptures, the destructive role that presence of the Roman Empire had on communities of color both during and after their status as colonies of the Roman Empire, and how this is reflected in the way the Scriptures are written. She also underscores throughout the role of specific constructions of gender in the colonizing process, as it is reflected in specific scriptural passages. It is a fascinating study. People of color throughout the world need to read and discuss it at local church levels (in the best of all possible worlds, smile).
