A Native American Theology
By: Clara Sue Kidwell George E. Tinker
The first book to articulate a comprehensive and systematic Christian theology through Native American eyes, this collaborative work represents a pathbreaking exercise. While observing traditional categories of Christian systematic theology (creation, God, christology, etc.) each of these topics is re-imagined consistent with Native experience, values, and wordview.
At the same time, the authors introduce new categories from Native throug-worlds, such as the Trickster (eraser of boundaries, symbol of ambiguity) and the Land (the embodiment of spiritual power). Finally the authors address issues facing American Indians today, including racism, poverty, stereotyping, cultural appropriation, and religious freedom.
