Theopoetics in Color

Embodied Approaches in Theological Discourse
  • By Oluwatomisin Olayinka Oredein, Lakisha R. Lockhart-Rusch
  • Foreword by Cláudio Carvalhaes
Product Description

A collaborative book project centering the liberative theopoetics practiced by a new generation of scholars of color

What is theopoetics? Once a field dominated by white liberals in the ivory tower, this embodied form of theology has flourished in the work of a new generation of scholars of color. In this groundbreaking book edited by Oluwatomisin Olayinka Oredein and Lakisha R. Lockhart-Rusch, a diverse team of theologians shows how theopoetics can be practiced "in color."

Featuring unconventional and artistic forms of religious reflection, this collection demonstrates how theology can become accessible when it reflects the embodied experiences of marginalized people and communities. These creative contributions defy the limitations of the white, Eurocentric academy, including such works as:
- an explanation on the use of experimental theater to express theological theses
- a guide to spiritual disciplines for metaphorical cyborgs seeking liberation
- a meditation on the theological import of Filipino potlucks
- a literary reflection on the meaning of religion to Black boys and men

Diverse in scope and radical in perspective, this bold volume reclaims the liberative potential of theopoetics. Scholars and students of theology and the arts will discover inspiring new methodologies and fresh ideas in these pages.
