About this title


The word “postcolonialism” consists of fifteen little letters, which give way to one big word that causes a lot of confusion and even a little bit of fear. Unless they’re historians or academics, most people don’t know what postcolonialism is, and they’re afraid to ask.

But such fear is unnecessary—and, right now, you need not ask. Put simply, postcolonialism is a deeply penetrating academic discipline that brings new meaning to our history and reinvents cultural perceptions held around the world; it does so by studying mankind in light of the heritage and legacies of colonial times.

In Being a Postcolonial Christian, prolific author, clergyman, and social psychologist Diarmuid O’Murchu, MSC, employs the postcolonialism perspective to analyze Christianity and challenge the conventional ways we have traditionally understood, approached, and used the Christian faith. Probing through history, theology, and the humanities, O’Murchu shows the ways Christianity has been used to promote imperial power rather than personal empowerment, as the original words of the Gospels intend.

A revolutionary, stirring work, Being a Postcolonial Christian exposes the underlying roots of one of the world’s oldest and most prevalent religions, and it offers a compelling alternative way of understanding and executing the Christian faith.

About the Author:

Diarmuid O’Murchu is a social psychologist, clergyman, and member of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart religious order. An expert in the field of adult faith development, he possesses extensive international experience as a workshop leader and group facilitator, and is the author of more than twenty books, including Quantum Theology, for which he is best known.

Adding another thought-provoking title to his list of publications, O’Murchu now celebrates the release of his most recent work, Being a Postcolonial Christian, a scholarly yet accessible analysis of the New Testament and principles of the Christian faith. He approaches these issues from a penetrating perspective integrating postcolonialism, its underpinnings, and its effects.
