Church and Empire: Detailing Theological Musings


This book focuses on the life and witness the faith community in the context of the Empire. The author calls for a radical ecclesiology of the excluded and the unqualified, and challenges the traditional notions of ecumenism and Ekklesia. He advocates for a contextual ecclesiology that seriously considers new strategies of mission and ministry in India and identifies the greatest challenges of the church in the contemporary world. The presentations also highlight the dangers of ecumenism based on the imperial logic of ‘oneness’ and re-defines ecumenism as a radical ontology of the multitude and common-wealth in the context of empire. These meticulously written articles identify the role of the theological academia and the church as to formulate biblical hermeneutics, liturgical discourses and ministerial models that will enable them to listen to the voice of the silenced by re-articulating their own theology, politics and aesthetics.
