Postcolonial Voices from Downunder
Indigenous Matters, Confronting Readings
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"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."
