About-

How do indigenous matters inform, irritate and advance postcolonial theologies and postcolonial biblical criticisms? What options emerge from confronting readings of religious, customary, scriptural, political and cultural texts, traditions, leanings, bodies and anxieties? These two questions epitomize the concerns that the contributors address in this collection. The postcolonial voices that come together between the covers of this book show that indigenous subjects and heritages do matter in the theological and hermeneutical business, for we all have something to learn from First Peoples, and that theologians and biblical critics have much to gain from (and offer to) confronting and troubling traditional views and fears.
 
Together in this book, the postcolonial voices from Downunder (geographically: Oceania, Pasifika; ideologically: marginalized, minoritized) confront political and religious bodies, including Christian churches, on account of their participation in and justification of the occupation and poaching of native lands, wisdom, wealth, and titles. This book is for First Peoples and Second Peoples, whether they are down under or up yonder, who are curious about possible advents of postcolonial theologies and postcolonial biblical criticisms in the future.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Postcolonial Voices from Downunder is a fervent invitation to reaffirm the sovereignty, spirit, stories, lives, hopes, and future of the indigenous people in and beyond Australia in a postcolonial epistemological context. Indigeneity, as this book expounds, has the political significance of confronting the powers of displacement, marginalization, and alienation. The book seeks to make a biblical and theological engagement with the indigenous life-worlds and entreats us to postcolonize our scripture, place, and lives." 
--Y. T. Vinayaraj, Author of Dalit Theology after Continental Philosophy 

"Postcolonial Voices from Downunder--at last, an incisive and compelling scholarly text, which proudly, confidently, and justly privileges indigenous spiritual, religious, theological, and biblical interests. Havea and his colleagues deliver with deep generosity and even deeper urgency what ought to be a compulsory reader for all those mandated for faith-filled leadership, whether secular or religious, in postcolonial Oceania, Pasefika, and for all students and teachers of Australian history."
--Jenny Te Paa Daniel, Co-Director, Ohaki Educational Consultancy; renowned activist Anglican theologian, Auckland, New Zealand
