Postcolonial Practice of Ministry : Leadership, Liturgy, and Interfaith Engagement Hardback
Edited by Kwok Pui-lan, Stephen Burns
Postcolonial studies has challenged the Eurocentric frameworks and methodologies in the fields of biblical studies and theology.
Postcolonial Practice of Ministry is a groundbreaking anthology that enables a new engagement between postcolonial and practical theologies, focused on three key areas of the practice of ministry: pastoral leadership, liturgical celebration, and interfaith engagement.
Postcolonial Practice of Ministry will make an impact in at least two areas of theological reflection: first, among postcolonial scholars, it will stretch postcolonial theology into an area where it has been neglected; second, it will provide a comprehensive resource for rethinking the practice of ministry.
Contributors to this volume are well-known scholars from different racial, national, and denominational backgrounds, bringing with them experiences of hybrid identities and multicultural churches.
Many of them are pioneers in introducing postcolonial discourse to their fields.
