Deep Inculturation

Indigenous Genius
  • By Marzanna Poplawska, Antonio Sison
Product Description

Seven leading global scholars of theology and religion look at inculturation from the perspective of indigenous cultures of the Global South and immigrant heritage cultures.

Traditionally, inculturation has referred to a strategy employed by Western missionaries to evangelize non-Christian cultures. But what does this look like from the other side, from the perspective of indigenous cultures of the Global South and immigrant-heritage cultures in the interstices of dominant cultures? Going beyond inherited ways of understanding and doing inculturation, this anthology turns the hermeneutical prism in new, diverse angles to reveal the variegated facets of a "deep inculturation" born from the creative and often heroic faith of underrepresented communities, who have, in the power of their own Indigenous genius, upheld their cultural identity and historical agency, while seeking religious synthesis.

Deep Inculturation features original essays by seven leading global theologians with a focus on inculturation in particular contexts: Africa, Mexico, Japan, Australia, and Indonesia.
