This chapter discusses the concept of postcolonial theology and the thoughts of Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak. A complex assortment of political influences and theoretical frameworks shapes the themes and informs the debates that characterize the nascent field of postcolonial theology. That multiplicity is mapped in terms of three primary themes: empire, identity, and the reimagining of Christian doctrines. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords:   Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak, postcolonial theology, religion, Christian doctrines
