Christian Theology and Tribal Culture: in Dialogue With C. S. Song

Lalboi Singsit (Author)

This book is an appraisal about Christianity from the Kuki tribal perspectives based on C. S. Song's theology of cultures. It is critiquing the present trend of Kuki Christianity that is in western garb at the expense of its culture, in that case even other tribes, too, have no exception. This book attempts to understand the gospel of Christ through the Kuki religious-cultural concepts and not via westernized Christianity with its metaphysical concepts that are in various cases insensible to the natives. A Christianity presented to us by the missionaries was a divided and colonial Christianity packed with western theological outlook. So, Song's theology of cultures is considered more appropriate by the author, to address the religious-cultural grievances of the Kuki people that have been disoriented by the colonial Christianity.
