From a major scholar, a postcolonial perspective on key current and historical issues in Anglicanism, foregrounding the voices of theologians and church leaders from the Global South.
In recent years, the Anglican Communion has been consumed by debates about gender, sexuality, authority, and biblical interpretation, which have frequently divided along North/South lines. Much of these controversies stem from the colonial history of Anglicanism.
Written by a pioneer in post-colonial theology, this groundbreaking volume challenges Eurocentrism and racism in the Anglican Church by highlighting the voices of theologians and church leaders from the Global South. The Anglican Tradition from a Post-Colonial Perspective scrutinizes Anglican theology and history to advocate for the decolonization of the Church. It examines controversies on Christianity and the social order; economic justice; gender and sexuality; women’s leadership; worship; and the Church’s mission in a religiously pluralistic world.
