by Tobias Keßler, Migration Als Ort Der Theologie Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Migration Als Ort Der Theologie book, Migration ist ein prominentes Thema, das unter verschiedensten Gesichtspunkten debattiert und analysiert wird. Weniger im Blick ist dabei die theologische Relevanz des Phänomens. Jenseits der unterschiedlichen Herangehensweisen und theologischen Disziplinen, die sie vertreten, plädieren die Autoren einstimmig für eine migrationssensible Theologie, die in der Globalisierung menschlicher Mobilität ein Zeichen der Zeit erkennt. Dabei wird deutlich, dass Migration ihrerseits einen theologiegenerativen Ort verkörpert, sodass hier und da bereits von einer Theologie der Migration die Rede ist.
by Anthony B. Pinn, Creating Ourselves Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Creating Ourselves book, Creating Ourselves is a unique effort to lay the cultural and theological groundwork for cross-cultural collaboration between the African and Latino/a American communities. In the introduction, the editors contend that given overlapping histories and interests of the two communities, they should work together to challenge social injustices. Acknowledging that dialogue is a necessary precursor to collaboration, they maintain that African and Latino/a Americans need to cultivate the habit of engaging “the other” in substantive conversation. Toward that end, they have brought together theologians and scholars of religion from both communities. The contributors offer broadly comparative exchanges about the religious and theological significance of various forms of African American and Latino/a popular culture, including representations of the body, literature, music, television, visual arts, and cooking. Corresponding to a particular form of popular culture, each section features two essays, one by an African American scholar and one by a Latino/a scholar, as well as a short response by each scholar to the other’s essay. The essays and responses are lively, varied, and often personal. One contributor puts forth a “brown” theology of hip hop that celebrates hybridity, contradiction, and cultural miscegenation. Another analyzes the content of the message transmitted by African American evangelical preachers who have become popular sensations through television broadcasts, video distribution, and Internet promotions. The other essays include a theological reading of the Latina body, a consideration of the “authenticity” of representations of Jesus as white, a theological account of the popularity of telenovelas, and a reading of African American ideas of paradise in one of Toni Morrison’s novels. Creating Ourselves helps to make popular culture available as a resource for theology and religious studies and for facilitating meaningful discussions across racial and ethnic boundaries.

by Jeanine Thweatt-Bates, Cyborg Selves Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Cyborg Selves book, What is the 'posthuman'? Is becoming posthuman inevitable-something which will happen to us, or something we will do to ourselves? Why do some long for it, while others fearfully reject it? These questions underscore the fact that the posthuman is a name for the unknown future, and therefore, not a single idea but a jumble of competing visions - some of which may be exciting, some of which may be frightening, and which is which depends on who you are, and what you desire to be. This book aims to clarify current theological and philosophical dialogue on the posthuman by arguing that theologians must pay attention to which form of the posthuman they are engaging, and to demonstrate that a 'posthuman theology' is not only possible, but desirable, when the vision of the posthuman is one which coincides with a theological vision of the human.
