Colonialism involves more than just territorial domination. It also creates cultural space that silences and disenfranchises those who do not hold power. This process of subjugation continues today in various forms of neocolonialism, such as globalization.

Like most postmodern/postcolonial/postyounameit projects, the authors raise penetrating questions which deserve thoughtful engagement; and yet, also like most post________ projects, the answers given by the are unclear at best and heretical at worst (chapter 8 in particular proposes a “fluidity” between Christ’s human and divine natures, p163).

Come for the questions, which really should be engaged, stay for little else.

challenging and changing. I highly recommend this book. It takes a bit of effort to learn the vocabulary of the contributors but it is worth it. There is such a great love for Jesus among the contributors. I appreciate all of their work in bringing hard issues to light that have distracted from the main message of Jesus. I learned and learned. I theologically disagree with a few contributors but their contributions did not hinge or our theological differences.

As a mashup of Evangelical thought on the subject of Postcolonialism this is an extremely helpful book. Some chapters are simply brilliant. Others less so, but still worth the read.
