Description


This book presents theological, cultural, ecclesial, and hermeneutical explorations from a specific context-Australia. It invites reimagining of theology and hermeneutics against the horizons of indigeneity and sovereignty, contingencies of context, feminist theologies, multiculturalism and intercultural theologies, sexual abuse and ecclesial cover-ups, suicide and worship, tradition(ing)s and betrayal, art and popular cultures, climate effects and climate (in) justice, disability theories, Islamic insights, migration and the images of home, and heaps of contextual matters in between. The chapters are organized into three sections: (1) Roots presents some of the starting points for contextual thinking in Australia and beyond; (2) Wounds attends to the demands of "bodies on the line" upon theological, biblical, and ecclesial engagements; and (3) Shifts pokes at thinkers and critics.
