About this book

This book addresses the challenges of living together after empire in many post-colonial cities. It is organized in two sections. The first section focuses on efforts by people of multiple faiths to live together within their contexts, including such efforts within a neighborhood in urban Manchester; the array of attempts at creating multi-faith spaces for worship across the globe; and initiatives to commemorate divisive conflict together in Northern Ireland. The second section utilizes particular postcolonial methods to illuminate pressing issues within specific contexts—including women’s leadership in an indigenous denomination in the variegated African landscape, and baptism and discipleship among Dalit communities in India. In the context of growing multiculturalism in the West, this volume offers a postcolonial theological resource, challenging the epistemologies in the Western academy.

Reviews

“This book goes beyond dialogue to explore solidarity between people of multiple faiths living in diverse contexts after empire. Interdisciplinary and innovative, it makes a critical contribution to political theology from a postcolonial perspective. I highly recommend it.” (Kwok Pui-lan, author of Postcolonial Imagination and Feminist Theology)

“Well aware of the continued reality of empire and determined to avoid the freezing of colonial relations, this volume takes a leap of faith: it imagines, witnesses and testifies to life after empire. In it, voices of faith from post-colonial cities testify to lived de-colonial realities. They speak to a shared effort to transform the book title’s question mark into an exclamation mark.” (Wietske de Jong-Kumru, Professor of Protestant Theology, Europa-Universität Flensburg, Germany)
