God is Not [and has never been] White: Biblical Post-colonial Theology

Tuesday, May 26, marked “Sorry Day” in Australia where the Australians pause to acknowledge there is no future without confessing and seeking to heal the pain of the genocide of Aboriginal peoples and the evils that created the ‘stolen generation.’  I was teaching on post-colonial missiology in Aotearoa [New Zealand] and was asked, “What do you think is the most important Australian contribution to this area?” My answer: “The Rainbow Spirit Theology: Toward an Australian Aboriginal Theology” (recently re-released). As a way of marking “Sorry Day,” I’d like to share some of my favourite quotes from this amazing book as a prayer for repentance and as a prayer for real justice for indigenous people everywhere.
