John and Postcolonialism is an exciting collection of essays connecting postcolonialism and the Gospel of John, written by a group of international scholars, both established and new, from Hispanic, African, Jewish, Chinese, Korean, and African-American backgrounds. It explores important topics such as the appropriation of John in settler communities of the United States and Canada, and the use of John in the colonization of Africa, Asia, Latin America, and New Zealand. The interpreters represent communities of borderland dwellers, women in colonized settings, minority ethnic groups within colonized centers, and others.
In an era of rapid globalization, increased travel, rising diasporic communities, and neocolonialism, it is crucial that biblical scholars find ways to address this world with critical skill and sensitivity. This book fills this need.
