In Search of A New Theological Discourse for the Caribbean

Archbishop Woodroffe Memorial Lecture 2017In Search of A New Theological Discourse for the Caribbean

Introduction

Since the movement for political independence, which began in the1960s, locals have replaced the expatriate missionaries; and drums, guitars, and steel pans are heard in many of our liturgical settings. In many of our churches however, the status quo remains as it was in colonial days. It is for this reason I wish to propose a paradigm shift in our approach to Caribbean theology.
