Product description


"I've puzzled about why there has been such a relatively sparse body of contextual and 'placebased' theology emerging from white Australia. Perhaps what has been lacking is the appropriate approach to the Australian landscape. I believe that Chris Budden's theology of 'Second Peoples' provides that approach. This book opens up a project that will hopefully animate a fresh, vigorous, and distinctively Australian theological conversation, especially between First and Second Peoples. But Budden's work is relevant to all of us who dwell on lands that have been invaded and occupied, and who are struggling to understand how to live the Christian tradition as inheritors of a legacy of conquest and continuing racism. This is an important contribution to imagining our future as a post-Constantinian church." Ched Myers, author of Who Rolled Away the Stone? "Budden is to be highly commended for his honesty and self-critique throughout. ... Over all, Following Jesus in Invaded Space provides an engaging introduction to issues of aboriginal reconciliation in Australia and in the Uniting Church. More importantly, it offers a passionate voice for justice and reconciliation." Alexander S. Jensen, in The Expository Times, Vol 124 (1) "For those researching the anthropology of Australian Christianity, and there is a growing interest in this area, Budden's book should be regarded as a must-read. ... anthropologists may learn much from this passionate voice." Philip Fountain, Asia Research Institute, National University of Singapore, in Anthropological Forum, August 2013 "Following Jesus in Invaded Space asks what - and whose - interests theology protects when it is part of a community that invaded the land of indigenous people. Developing a theological method and position that self-consciously acknowledges the church's role in occupying Aboriginal land in Australia, it dares to speak of God, church, and justice in the context of past history and continuing dispossession. Hence, a 'Second People's theology' emerges through constant and careful attention to experiences of invasion and dislocation brought into dialogue with the theological landscape or tradition of the church." Theological Book Review, Vol 25, No 2 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
