You are invited to a Book Launch for Unsettling the Word – Biblical Experiments in Decolonization.
The event will feature a panel of contributors, readings, and copies will be on sale ($25).
FOR GENERATIONS, the Bible has been employed by settler colonial societies as a weapon to dispossess Indigenous and racialized peoples of their lands, cultures, and spiritualities. Given this devastating legacy, many want nothing to do with it.
But is it possible for the exploited and their allies to reclaim the Bible from the dominant powers? Can we make it an instrument for justice in the cause of the oppressed? Even a nonviolent weapon toward decolonization?
In Unsettling the Word, over 60 Indigenous and Settler authors come together to wrestle with the Scriptures, re-reading and re-imagining the ancient text for the sake of reparative futures.
ed. Steve Heinrichs, illust. Jonathan Dyck
