"If God cannot save me and my village from my enemy's attack, I will make idols and worship them." An anonymous vilager (Manipur, India) The introduction of Christianity by missionaries in North-East India, without ignoring the positive contribution, failed to provide a sound theological foundation for the people of this region in their quest for identity and liberation. In this publication, the author, a native of the region, investigates the struggle for identity among the tribal people of North-East India and more particularly the Kuki people of Manipur. Exploring the social, cultural, religious and political changes brought to the people of this region the book highlights their real struggle for justice and dignity. Outlining aspects of the Kuki tradition, as well as dialoguing with Dalit and tribal theology the author proposes possible contributions to a local theology that can help in shaping a new sense of identity for the tribal people of North-East India.

About the Author:

JANGKHOLAM HAOKIP holds a PhD from the University of Aberdeen, Scotland and an MTh from the United Theological College, India. He is a faculty member at Union Biblical Seminary, Pune, India and is also involved with integral mission and social justice projects among disadvantaged minority communities in India. He has previously served as a pastor of an emerging church in Pune, India, called the 'Kuki Worship Service', was one of the founding members of a holistic discipleship centre called 'Som-Inn', and has also worked with Operation Mobilisation in India. Dr Haokip is married to Laljem Haokip who is a medical doctor and active mission supporter.

Review:

Dr Jangkholam Haokip, in this signi cant monograph, discusses historical, socio- political and theological perspectives on the Christian identity of the Kuki people and presents a theology of identity drawn from his interaction with Dalit theology and tribal theology. This book contains rich material which is thoroughly researched, clearly presented and convincingly argued. It should therefore be on any must-read list for theology and mission studies in India. Professor Sebastian Kim Chair in Theology and Public Life York St John University
