Mark G. Brett is professor of Old Testament at the University of Melbourne. He is also the author of Decolonizing God: The Bible in the Tides of Empire and Genesis: Procreation and the Politics of Identity.
-- Tim Gorringe in Theology "A deeply rewarding contribution to Christian ethics which deserves wide circulation among all those (theology students, ministers, lay people prepared to make the effort) who want to understand what the significance of being Christian in a post-Christian world might be, and who want to see how it might be possible to fashion a world shaped to the divine purposes as these are revealed to us in Scripture." Walter Brueggemann -- Columbia Theological Seminary "Mark Brett addresses himself to the tricky, complex work of restorative justice that is to be accomplished through dialogic engagement. He brings to this task immense learning and personal engagement; the realities of colonial history and the prospect of postcolonial well-being permeate his study. This work is nothing less than a tour de force." M. Daniel Carroll R. -- Wheaton College "In impressive interdisciplinary fashion, Brett argues that the Christian Scripture can constructively engage today's postcolonial and ecological realities. The Priestly tradition and other like-minded imaginaries, he contends, reflect an anti-imperial perspective among the diverse voices within the Hebrew Bible and provide faith communities with the theological tools for humble participation in the public square. Some may not agree with aspects of Brett's biblical reconstruction, but none can ignore his weighty call to deal responsibly with Christendom's colonial legacy and to offer a different way forward. A remarkable work!"
