Church and Culture examines the forces of inculturation within the Jamaican context and asserts that inculturation of the gospel as experienced by this church does not constitute a one-way movement in which African-Jamaican's journey from a Euro-centric Christian identity to an Afro-centric Christian identity. Rather it is a complex socio-religious phenomenon of hybridity and contradiction that incorporates duality of development and varied experiences.

Biography: Dr. Roderick Hewitt is Academic Leader for Theology and Ethics and Senior lecturer in the School of Religion, Philosophy and Classics (SRPC) at the University of Kwa-Zulu Natal.



In this book, Roderick Hewitt makes a significant and lucid contribution to the burgeoning fields of postcolonial, inculturation and missiological discourses.  Set in the Caribbean context, the unique contribution of this work is that it reflects on the nuances of inculturation and missiology in postcolonial hybrid communities. This is a must-read for all postcolonial and missiological scholars.

The issue of Christian identity has dominated theological discourse in post-colonial Africa and Africa in the Diaspora. Roderick Hewitt’s book is a valuable missiological resource to the ongoing discourse about Gospel and Culture that demands creative ways of being Church within a Caribbean context shaped by hybridity and contradiction.
